September 23-30, 2017, marks the third annual National Coaches Week! The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) and the 13 Provincial and Territorial Coaching Representatives (P/TCRs)’s National Coaches Week is a week to celebrate the positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. This week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play by saying #ThanksCoach.
- Coaches are a valuable contributor to communities across Canada.
- Canadians across the country should take the opportunity during National Coaches Week to say, #ThanksCoach.
- Coaching contributes significantly to volunteerism in Canada.
With events held across the country to celebrate coaching, National Coaches Week provides coaches with the recognition they deserve for the time they devote to ensuring Canadians live an active, healthy lifestyle.

Are you interested in writing a profile about a coach you want to say “thanks” to? Here is a quick and easy template you can provide your athletes with to get information about coaches in your community that you want to profile!
Who can you fill out a #ThanksCoach profile for? Anyone! From grassroots to high performance, all coaches are deserving of recognition. Tell us about a coach that deserves a big thank you!
Why should you profile a deserving coach? The #ThanksCoach profile initiative is part of National Coaches Week that helps celebrate the diversity of coaches across Canada and the positive impact they have across the country.
There are several ways to show your appreciation to your coach. A quick and easy way is to send an e-Card to your coach thanking them on their amazing job and the impact they’ve had in your life.
To send an e-Card is very simple, just follow these steps:
- Go to http://thanks.coach.ca/
- Click the e-Card.
- Customize your e-Card by filling out the recipient’s information, your message to your favourite coach and your information.
- Pick a date then click VIEW.
- Once you have reviewed the information and everything looks great, press SEND.
- You’ll then see a confirmation that your e-card has been sent.
Send this e-card to as many coaches as you like. This small gesture will mean so much to your coach.
