Ontario Coaching Excellence Awards

It's hard to recognize so many good coaches throughout the province in just one day, which is why the Coaches Association of Ontario gives them a whole week! Ontario Coaches Week takes place September 20-27, 2014.

The Ontario Coaching Excellence Awards kicked off OCW on Saturday, September 20th at the Scotiabank Theatre in Toronto. The Awards celebrate the dedication and commitment of exemplary people who inspire, innovate and share knowledge of sport with others.

Leslie Lawlor (Sydenham High School, Kingston) and Ken VanderZwaag (Woodland Christian High School, Kitchener) won in the School Sport category. OFSAA congratulates Leslie and Ken on their awards, and thanks them for their dedication to student-athletes through the years.
