National Coaches Week  Sept 17 - 25, 2022


National Coaches Week is a week to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. It’s an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play by simply saying #ThanksCoach.


This year, National Coaches Week will be taking place from September 17-25, 2022, and AGF would like to invite your club and its members to participate in a fun activity that will surely warm your coach’s heart!


This is a great opportunity to celebrate your coach(es) on social media.  Simply post a picture or video of you and your coach(es) and let everyone know what makes them so great. A couple of things you can think about …

  • What does your coach do that makes them a great coach?
  • A favourite memory/story about your coach.
  • What lesson(s) has your coach taught you?
  • Pick three words that describe your coach.
  • What is an important skill your coach has that makes them a good coach?
  • Why do you want to say “Thanks, Coach”?
