Do you know a coach who should be considered a candidate for Coach of The Year?
Nominations are now being accepted below for the Pierre Sonier Coach of the Year Award.
Pierre was a fine coach and a fine athlete. He played many sports and being a part of provincial championship teams was not an uncommon event for him. He coached his children in soccer, basketball and hockey for ten years. His goal was always to build every player's self-esteem and to motivate the team to do their very best. He educated while he coached. Winning was a goal, but never giving up and being the best you could be was more important.
Each year this award will go to a head coach whom Pierre would admire for their love of sport and for the sacrifice of their time and energy for the children. It will go to a coach who has an unconditional commitment to each and every child. This coach must have a competitive spirit but know what is really important in life - the success and happiness of children.
