The Coaching Association of Canada presents the Impact Award to an individual or organization in recognition of their creation of an innovative event or program that has benefited the sport and coaching community. In response to a dynamic sport environment (ex. the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting period of restricted sport, the Black Lives Matter movement, the increasing collaboration and efforts to improve safety in sport, etc), the recipient has demonstrated perseverance and a determination to uplift those around them. The recipient has also shown a dedication to supporting marginalized groups in sport throughout the creation and implementation of the event or program.
The CAC recognizes the variety of contributors to the success of the sport system in Canada. Therefore, the CAC welcomes nominations for initiatives in any area that contributes to the growth and development of coaching (ex. education, research, accessibility of sport, professional development).
The nomination period will open on Friday, May 21.
