National Coaches Week, September 16-24

National Coaches Week is a week-long public awareness campaign that encourages people in Canada to say thanks and to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and their communities. This week puts a spotlight on coaches and gives this integral part of the Canadian sport system a much-deserved thanks.

With virtual activities 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, Cycling BC encourages everyone to say #thankscoach to all the coaches who call BC home.
