Ontario Coaching Excellence Awards

For the past decade, with the help of many of you in every part of Ontario, we have been able to tell the story and celebrate a long list of incredible Ontario community sport coaches.  Once again, we are looking to celebrate coaches who stand out in their community for how well they lead in sport, inspire and deserve provincial recognition.  We are looking for Ontario coaches who embrace diversity, push the envelope and break through barriers; those unsung coaching heroes, men and women who continue to be great role model for citizenship and those who inspire and instill a life-long love of sport in their teams and athletes. 
Nominate them for an Ontario Coaching Excellence Award who should be celebrated as part of the 4th annual National Coaches Week celebration, September 22-30, 2018.  The Coaches Association of Ontario is accepting nominations up until June 28, 2018.
