National Coaches Week features plenty of events across Canada from coach training, to coach recognition nights. There are lots of ways you can celebrate coaching! You’re invited to host your own National Coaches Week event, or even to simply incorporate coach recognition into an event that is already taking place during National Coaches Week! Recognizing coaches is easy. Having a special practice where you’ll say #ThanksCoach? Hosting an NCCP workshop? Are you having a special awards ceremony to say ‘thanks’ to all of the coaches from your club? All of those events count as National Coaches Week events! We’ve created tons of tools to help you either get started, or make your event more memorable. Access the Marketing Kit for tools, resources, and more!

National Coaches Week wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Canadian Sport Community and its corporate partners. Founded through a collaboration of the Coaching Association of Canada and the Provincial and Territorial Coaching Representatives, National Coaches Week is proud to have invited all 66 National Sport Organizations, their hundreds of Provincial/Territorial Sport Organizations, and the thousands of clubs across Canada to join us in celebrating the powerful positive impact of Canada’s coaches.

National Coaches Week’s corporate partners have exemplified their commitment to coaching by joining Canadians in saying #ThanksCoach as a partner in the inaugural National Coaches Week. National Coaches Week and all of its partner organizations would like to thank and recognize all of our corporate partners for their contribution.
