Ontario Coaching Excellence Awards

Celebrating Ontario’s Coaches!

The Ontario Coaching Excellence Awards are annually handed out to a group of exemplary coaches nominated from across Ontario.

This top provincial coaching honour across all sports and levels, celebrates the integral role coaches play with their team(s), sport and community as we kick off National Coaches Week.

2023 winning coaches were recognized with a VIP Toronto Blue Jays suite experience and celebration on September 16, 2023 at the Rogers Centre.

Winning coaches are also awarded a $500 prize reimbursement to be used on purchases they make for their team, club or organization, from local Ontario and Canadian businesses, proudly provided by Hydro One Inc.

Do you know a coach is simply the best ever? We want to hear from you!

Nominations for the 2024 awards open in the new year!
