Coach-- Mr. Ralph Barker

"Mr. Ralph", has, once again, chosen to give up retirement and return to his great love of coaching Competitive Artistic Roller Skating. He is considered by many 'The Dean' of Coaches in The South Central Region. Ralph and his lovely bride of more than 50 years, Peggy, have owned and managed numerous rinks since they moved to Texas in 1952. He is originally from Idaho and Peggy from California. After his most recent retirement, he was heard to comment "boy it's nice to have the time to watch the sun go down on a regular basis (instead of being at a rink 15 hours a day). Well, Mr. Ralph, I guess that new found past time of yours got old already, 'cause we see you are back at the rink teaching, AGAIN, and, we are very glad to have you!!!
