Nominations Open For Coaching Excellence Awards

Mar 22, 2016 | Uncategorized

The Coaches Association of Ontario (CAO) Coaching Excellence Awards aim to recognize the outstanding achievements and significant contributions coaches have made to both their sport and athletes in Ontario. The selection of recipients (1 Male and 1 Female) is based on their unique contribution to sport through continuous development. The awards do not reflect the accomplishments of a coach in any one year; rather the award is designed to recognize the contributions a coach has made over a period of years.

2016 Coaching Excellence Awards will be presented September 17 in Toronto.

OFSAA is responsible for the selection of a male and a female coach in the School Sport category. This award is open to active teacher coaches with a minimum of 5 years coaching experience. Nominated coaches must have coached 2 or more sports in a school year over the period of 5 years. The nominated coach must have influenced the development of new coaches and have shown evidence of program building as well as encouraging athletes to give back to sports. Furthermore the nominated coaches’ coaching style has proven to be ethical, demonstrated sportsmanship and positive game behaviour.

Nominations will only be accepted from association representatives in the identified regions.  The OFSAA Coaching Committee will select one (1) male and one (1) female recipient from the nominations received. Nominations are due Monday, May 23rd, 2016.
