National Coaches' Week provides coaches with the recognition they deserve for the time they devote to ensuring Canadians live an active, healthy lifestyle. From September 18 - 26, 2021, we encourge everyone to say thanks to the coaches who call B.C. home. To help celebrate National Coaches Week, viaSport will be hosting their annual #ThanksBCcoach Coaches Week Contest! Check out last year's winner. The viaSport Regional Alliance will be hosting a number of courses and workshops in honor of Coache's Week, keep an eye out for registration information in our calendar and on our social media channels.
Coach recognition is an incredibly important part of viaSport's work - read more about the 2020 Coach of the Year Award winners. We had the incredible opportunity to interview the Community and Competition Coaches of the Year, check out Luba and Iuliana's videos.
