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. 

The Excellence Awards have four 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.

When appropriate the Excellence Awards will also recognize two additional categories: Years of Service and International Coach.
