As the curriculum director, he was responsible for training materials, manuals, books, and curriculum for youth, high school, all-star, and college levels. He has appeared in many of the NCA's training videos and speaks regularly at coaching clinics around the country. Carrier is head instructor for many of the NCA's largest camps, and he personally trains more than 5,000 athletes and 400 high school coaches each summer. In addition, he created and developed the coaches certification program for the NCA from 2000 to 2005 and coauthored curriculum for safety programs for both the United States All- Star Federation (USASF) and the National Council for Spirit Safety and Education (NCSSE).

Her squads have won two state championships, been awarded four Sportsmanship Trophies at boys' state basketball tournaments, and consistently received Distinguished Academic Achievement Awards. Almost 80 cheerleaders from McKay's squads have been selected to Iowa All-State Squads.
