National Coaches Week (September 17-25, 2016)

468X60 ENG

National Coaches Week is a week to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. This week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play by simply saying #ThanksCoach.

September 17 – 25, 2016 marks the second annual National Coaches Week and we’re asking Canadians everywhere for your help celebrating! Whether you are from a National Sport Organization, Provincial/Territorial Sport Organization, club, or you are a coach, parent, or athlete, we want your help saying ‘thanks!’ to coaches from coast to coast.  

 How can you get involved?

It can be as simple as writing a letter or biography about a coach you’d like to thank, or as elaborate as hosting your own National Coaches Week event. 

Having a practice where you’ll be saying #ThanksCoach? Hosting a coaching workshop? Having special recognition days for your club coaches? All those events count as National Coaches Week Events! 

We have an array of tools that will help you promote and recognize coaches in your community.
