  • Phil Allen’s 805 wins are the most by a post secondary basketball coach in Canadian history, and along the way he had an immeasurable influence on players and the sport. Phil’s head coaching career started in Calgary with SAIT in 1978. In 14 seasons he led the Trojans to 9 provincial and 2 national championships, and in 1986, his team had a perfect 34-0 season. Phil moved on to coach at Grant MacEwan for 7 seasons, and then for another 5 years at Lakeland College based in Vermilion and Lloydminster. There, Allen lead the Rustlers to Nationals in 2008.

    In Phil’s 26 seasons, his teams only missed the playoffs twice. He took 10 squads to the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Championships, winning twice. He was named the top college coach in Alberta three times, and the top college coach in Canada in 1983.

    Throughout his career, Phil was always giving back. He ran basketball camps in Calgary for many years for junior and high school students. He coached the Alberta Wheelchair Basketball
    Team for two seasons and the National Wheelchair Team for one. In Edmonton, Phil helped develop the Club Basketball System, allowing athletes to participate in basketball outside of their school teams.

    Phil Allen was inducted onto the SAIT Wall of Distinction in 2004 and the ACAC Hall of Fame in 2014.

    Todayville is proud to have produced the video profiles of this year’s Inductees. Check out other great stories by clicking this link.

    Since it’s inception in 1957, hundreds of Albertans have been inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame.  We invite everyone to join us in this celebration of both new Inductees and returning Honoured Members, and their lasting impact on sport in our province.  If you would like more information please call (403) 341-8614 or click here.

    The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame presents their 2019 Inductees; three athletes, three builders, one team and three Award recipients. These ten Albertans will have their legacies in sports preserved and celebrated by all of Alberta for generations to come. The Inductees will become official Honoured Members of the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame at the Induction Banquet taking place May 31, 2019.

    The inductees include athletes who are Olympians and World Champions, builders who have dedicated endless hours to develop their sports, a team who knows the meaning of teamwork, and a pioneer who has partaken and watched his sport evolve throughout the decades. The celebration of these inductees is a show of appreciation and acknowledgement to the growth of the sports to which they have contributed and to those they continue to inspire.

    “Today, we recognize those who have inspired us through their accomplishments in sports in Alberta and throughout the world. The Class of 2019 Inductees have demonstrated their dedication, skills and commitment to their sports. We look forward to celebrating their accomplishments at the 2019 Induction Banquet on May 31st in Red Deer.”
