The Coaching Award

A great coach inspires, advises, challenges and helps swimmers to achieve their goals. Masters Swimming Canada wouldn't be what it is today without the hundreds of coaches who are dedicated and invest so much time and energy to do just that. Each year, the Excellence in Coaching Award recognizes a coach who stands out in this already exceptional group of people. The recipient of this prestigious award has significant individual and club accomplishments, is a long term contributor to Masters Swimming, presents a positive image of coaching and its role, demonstrates concern for the all-around development of the athlete and demonstrates integrity and responsibility while coaching.
