The search is on for Football Canada’s Coach of the Year
Is there a coach who above and beyond that deserves some recognition?
For the second consecutive year, the search is on for the Football Canada Coach of the Year. Community Coach Awards will be selected in two categories: U14 and U18.
Overall, the goal of these honours is to highlight coaches who have made a positive contribution to the sport from coast to coast while demonstrating a significant impact on the development of youth on and off the field.
“Our community coaches across the country are vitally important in the lives of young Canadians and the development of our sport,” expressed Aaron Geisler, Manager of Development. “The hard work, dedication and time they put into the game of football is something we want to recognize and appreciate.”
Football Canada is seeking nominations for both categories. In order to nominate a coach, EITHER a video OR written submission will be accepted. The submission must reflect two key components of this award:
- The positive impact the coach has had on youth players
- Considerations of how the coach instructs key components of the game such as respect, safety, motivation, leadership and appreciation for the sport
