He was previously the General Manager for the Toronto Ultimate Club from 2004 to 2005 an organization that he started and ran from 1984 to 1991. He has also acted as Event Manager for 1988 Canadian National Ultimate & Overall Championships and the 1991 WFDF World Ultimate Club Championships consider being the pinnacle catalyst for change in the sport. Chris served as a founding member of the World Flying Disc Federation and served on various committees from 1984 through to 1991, and created the Disc Involvement Society of Canada (DISCANADA) and worked to elevate disc sports across Canada from 1984 through to 2012.

Between 2006 to 2012 Chris was able to garner funding towards the hands on teaching of 30,000 students across Ontario and has been instrumental in developing in partnership with Ultimate Canada - the required NCCP sessions and the development and creation of the Long Term Athlete Development plan through funding partnerships with the Ontario Trillium Foundation
