CAO My Coach Video Contest

Dec 18, 2013 | Uncategorized

The Coaches Association of Ontario is again searching for exemplary coaches who have inspired their athletes with leadership, mentorship, teaching, nurturing, citizenship, preparation and fun.

We at OFSAA know there are too many great coaches in Ontario to count, and while we meet a few of them at provincial championships there are so many more out there that deserve recognition fo their commitment to school sports and enriching the lives of student-athletes across the province.

Through this contest, Ontario athletes can upload a video to YouTube explaining how their coach has impacted their life and why their coach should win.

For more information on the contest and to see some of 2013’s best videos please visit the CAO website, or you can download the PDF news release.
