Since 1963, Dean has coached at many different canoe clubs, including 16 years at Missy; as well as coaching many national team athletes. His 1963 team of Missy Bantams won WOD's and were CCA champions in C4. In 1990, Missy was awarded the City of Mississauga's Team of the Year award while Dean was Head Coach.
