The Coaching Manitoba IMPACT Awards presented by Manitoba Liquor  & Lotteries aim to recognize and celebrate the outstanding achievements and significant contributions coaches have made to their athletes and their sport through coaching.

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 2014 Coaching Manitoba IMPACT Awards presented by Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries were held April 6th at McPhillips Station Casino.
