In 1968, Albert joined the staff of Dwight Ross School in Greenwood where he taught for 28 years and while there coached Jr. High fastball and hockey for many of those years.
In 1972, he started teaching figure skating in Middleton and two years later was instrumental in the rebirth of minor baseball there when he served as coach and president for a number of years.
Minor hockey in the Middleton area was fortunate to have had him as coach from 1976 to 1985, as president for 10 years and a member of the rink commission for over 25 years.
Albert was also associated with AAA Midget hockey as an executive member beginning in 1990 and also served as president for 3 years. He also coached the Valley Wildcats AAA Midget hockey team for a year and managed their bingo fund raiser for over 10 years.
Beginning in 1997, Albert coached the MRHS Blues hockey team, leading them to the provincial playdowns in 1998, 1999 and 2000. Three Johnson-coached teams have captured provincial titles: 1985 & 1986 Atom C and 1985 Bantam D.
S. Albert Johnson, through his outstanding leadership skills and dedication to the youth of Middleton and area, established himself as a true builder and a fine example of unselfish service to his community.
