This Sept. 21 to 29, the Coaches Association of Ontario (CAO), Niagara Region, and the Canadian sport community will be hosting the 5th annual National Coaches Week.

This national celebration spotlights coaching and recognizes all of the dedication and hard work this largely volunteer base does to help ensure all Canadians live an active, healthy lifestyle.

This week-long campaign encourages all Canadians to say #ThanksCoach and celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and their communities.

From Sept. 20 to 22 at Monsignor Clancy Elementary School in Thorold, in partnership with Thorold Legion Minor Baseball, the CAO is hosting a National Coaches Week Community Clinic. This event will offer subsidized National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) training for local coaches to help alleviate the financial barriers to training many volunteer coaches experience.

Throughout the remainder of the week, you can support a coach by bidding on unique and exciting packages as part of the National Coaches Week online fundraising auction.

Win courtside Toronto Raptors tickets, family adventure packages, travel experiences and more, all in support of Ontario’s 300,000 coaches who call Thorold, Niagara region and Ontario home.

The Coaches Association of Ontario is an independent, non-profit, coach-led organization, founded in 2002, that serves the needs of coaches to create an exceptional, safe and positive experience for all athletes and participants at every stage of their sport participation.
