Tim Lem began his long term commitment to coaching high school rugby at Eastview Secondary School. He began as assistant coach to the Barrie Sports Hall of Fame, 1993 coach of the year Jim Hamilton. Tim learned well and brought his skills to Barrie Central in 1995. Under his leadership the Central girls rugby program has become recognized as one of the best in the province and have the records to back it up. For the past five years Lem has guided the Central senior girls rugby team to championship finishes at the Georgian Bay Secondary School Association (GBSSA) championships. This provided the teams the opportunity to participate in the last five Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association (OFSAA) provincial championships. In 1999 they came in fourth. They pick it up a notch in 2000 with a bronze medal finish. In 2001 they captured the first of two gold medals in 3 years. A silver was won in 2002. The team was another power house in 2003 when they picked up their second Gold. A number of his players have also been selected to both Ontario Provincial and Canadian National teams. Lem is very proud of his teams and treats them as a family with one common goal.
