Rowing BC Awards and Recognition
The Rowing BC Awards and Recognition Taskforce has created an awards program to support Rowing BC’s 2018 – 2021 Strategic Plan, specifically Strategic Direction 1, Goal 2, which states that Rowing BC will “Support a healthy athlete-centred rowing system” and “Enhance recognition of participants within the system.”
On November 17th, during the 2018 Rowing BC Conference and AGM, as a community we will celebrate the people that make rowing in BC so great. Rowing BC will be presenting awards in the following five categories (all categories will not necessarily be awarded annually):
- Athlete of the Year;
- High-Performance Coach of the Year;
- Learn-to-Row Coach of the Year;
- Rowing BC Umpire of the Year; and
- Outstanding Volunteer Certificates.
Athlete of the Year
Rowing BC’s Provincial Coach will select the Athlete of the Year based on performance outcomes.
