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.

Criteria: Videos should focus on a coach who betters the lives of the athletes they work with. Themes to consider include: leadership, mentorship, teaching, nurturing, citizenship, preparation and fun.

Judging: A judging panel will select the finalists from all submissions. Those videos will be presented at the Ontario Coaches Conference in Kingston, Ont., from February 21-23, 2014. Any coach recognized in a finalist video will receive a full pass to attend the Conference.

During the month of March, the finalists will be posted online for viewing by the general public, with the winners being selected by popular vote. Online voting will be open from March 1st to March 31st, 2014. The top video and runners-up will be announced at the Ontario Coaching Excellence Awards in Spring 2014.
