Scott Martin has been involved in coaching basketball in the Province of Manitoba for over 35 years. Scott got his start, volunteering to coach the grade 9 team at his alma mater Churchill High School, while still a student at the University of Manitoba.

He was a part of the Bison team that placed 3rd at the Nationals in the 1984-85 season. The three years of coaching at Churchill led to his decision to obtain a degree in Education and a career as a teacher. 

Scott received his first teaching job at Tec Voc High School, where he coached for four years. He moved to Sisler High School, where he taught and coached for 28 years. His teams advanced to the Provincial playoffs in 28 of his 32 years of coaching, including 9 Final Four appearances, 5 Final appearances, and 3 Championships. Over the years, Scott has been involved with Basketball Manitoba and the Manitoba Basketball Coaches Association as a head coach and assistant coach of Provincial Teams, working at camps and running the JV Boys Provincial Championships.
