National Coaches Week

National Coaches Week

Saturday, September 22nd 2018 - Kingston, ON

Today marks the beginning of National Coaches Week! From September 22nd to the 29th, join us in thanking all coaches and instructors that spend countless hours mentoring, developing, and motivating sailors of all ages to perform their very best. Sail Canada has 993 registered coaches and instructors across the country who work hard to deliver our programs. From local grassroots, to recreational levels, to international competition; our coaches do it all!  

Don’t forget to say #ThanksCoach at this week’s game, practice, or training session.  

Run by the Coaching Association of Canada, National Coaches Week is a week to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. This week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play.
