National Coaches Week encourages Canadians to say thanks and to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities. This week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play by simply saying #ThanksCoach.

The Coaching Association of Canada has created a Participation Guide, which includes National Coaches Week graphics you can personalize to your sport, templates and wording for your newsletter and social media, and more:

Social Media Campaign

Sport Manitoba will be posting #ThanksCoach videos and messages from a few high-profile athletes to highlight and encourage athletes of all levels throughout Manitoba to thank their coaches on social media.  

From September 20-24, the Paul Robson Resource Centre for Leadership and Coaching, 2nd floor, 145 Pacific Avenue, will be a place where #ThanksCoach videos can be filmed. Safety measures will be in place to promote physical distancing and hand hygiene. Pre-packaged cookies will be available for each person who comes and films their video.
