Ottawa, Ontario (April 22, 2016) – The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) and TeamSnap, the leading tool for organizing and communicating every aspect of active sports life, are pleased to announce an extension of their partnership in support of coaches across Canada. In addition to their continued involvement with National Coaches Week, TeamSnap is now a CAC National Corporate Partner and a presenting partner of the #CoachToolKit initiative.

“We are thrilled to expand our existing relationship with TeamSnap after the inaugural National Coaches Week was such a great success,” said Lorraine Lafrenière, Chief Executive Officer of the CAC. “We recognize how important a volunteer coach’s time is to the sport community, and together with TeamSnap, we look forward to continuing to develop tools that continue to support their practice.”

Ten million coaches, administrators, players, and parents use TeamSnap to make organizing sports as simple as click, tap, and go.
