The Coaching Manitoba Excellence Awards aim to recognize and
celebrate the outstanding achievements and significant contributions
coaches have made to their athletes and their sport through coaching.
The selection of recipients is based on their unique contribution to
sport through the continued development of their athletes. The award
does not reflect the accomplishments and contributions of a coach in
any one-year; rather, the awards are designed to acknowledge the
contributions a coach has made to his/her sport and athletes over a
number of years.  Deadline to make a submission is Monday February 16, 2009.  For details...



The Excellence Awards have
three categories. The category refers to the type of athlete the coach
is primarily responsible for, with the exception of the School System
category, which refers to a coach who is a paid employee of a school.

Nomination Deadline: February 16th, 2009
