Coaches Week Celebrates Coaches Coast To Coast

For Immediate Release

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 organizations such as viaSport British Columbia are asking Canadians everywhere for their help celebrating. Whether you are from a National Sport Organization, Provincial/Territorial Sport Organization, club, or you are a coach, parent, or athlete, they want your help saying ‘thanks!’ to coaches from coast to coast.

National Coaches Week wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Canadian Sport Community and its corporate partners. Founded through a collaboration of the Coaching Association of Canada and the Provincial and Territorial Coaching Representatives, National Coaches Week is proud to have invited all 67 National Sport Organizations, their hundreds of Provincial/Territorial Sport Organizations, and the thousands of clubs across Canada to join us in celebrating the powerful positive impact of Canada’s coaches.

National Coaches Week’s corporate partners have exemplified their commitment to coaching by joining Canadians in saying #ThanksCoach as a partner in the inaugural National Coaches Week. National Coaches Week and all of its partner organizations would like to thank and recognize all of their corporate partners for their contribution.
