Celebrate National Coaches Week


This is your chance to recognize a coach who has gone the extra mile for your children and thank them for the time and effort that they volunteer throughout the year.

National Coaches Week is a week-long public awareness campaign that encourages Canadians to say thanks and celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities. This week will focus on putting a spotlight on coaches and give this, largely volunteer, integral part of Canadian sport a thanks.

With events held across the province and country to celebrate coaching, National Coaches Week provides coaches with the recognition they deserve for the time they devote to ensuring Canadians live an active, healthy lifestyle. This week say thanks to the more than twenty-one thousand coaches who call Manitoba home.

Here’s what’s taking place during the fourth annual National Coaches Week:
