Please include as much information as possible about your student-athlete.  Specifically their school and community involvement, and how they exemplify OFSAA’s values.

 

Coaching Excellence Award

The CAO Coaching Excellence Awards recognize outstanding coaches and their contributions to both their sport and athletes in Ontario. The selection of recipients will be based on their unique contribution to sport through coaching.

These awards do not reflect the accomplishments of a coach in any one year; rather the awards are designed to recognize the contributions a coach has made over a period of years.
