National Coaches Week is a time to celebrate the positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. This annual campaign is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play, and to take time to say #ThanksCoach.
Each year, thousands of people across Canada take part in National Coaches Week to say #ThanksCoach for their time, effort and generosity.
