National Coaches Week is September 21-29

National Coaches Week is a week-long public awareness campaign that encourages Canadians to say thanks and to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes, participants and their communities. With events held across the country to celebrate coaching, National Coaches Week provides coaches with the recognition they deserve for the time they devote to ensuring Canadians live an active, healthy lifestyle. 

This week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play by simply saying #ThanksCoach. 

To stay up to date with everything that is happening, visit and follow along on social media using #CoachesWeek and #ThanksCoach.
