CALL YOUR COACH ON SATURDAY AND SAY THANKS FOR COACHING! It’s time for us to get up and join together in recognizing our Canadian basketball coaches for all that they give.  Canada Basketball is declaring NOVEMBER 22, 2014 as Basketball Coaches Day in Canada!

What is it?

Basketball Coaches Day in Canada is a national celebration of all Canadian basketball coaches for all the time, dedication and passion that they contribute to our sport through the year. From November 16th-22nd Canada Basketball and its stakeholders will launch a national campaign to encourage communities to participate in recognizing their coaches.

The objectives are:

  • To raise the appreciation level for the commitment that basketball coaches put into athletes, teams, programs and community sport
  • To thank those that have had such a great impact on our youth and their sporting development from the grassroots to the high performance
  • To create awareness of the passion and desire our Canadian coaches have for improvement

How to get involved?

Canada Basketball is encouraging sporting clubs, schools, community associations to explore different ways to show and express their appreciation to their basketball coaches.

Using #CBcoachday, we want to engage the Canadian basketball community across the country! Join us in the celebration on social media, by showing your gratitude and appreciation for all that your coaches do!
