More than 230 coaches and sport administrators from a variety of sports gathered at the annual coaches' conference to network, share and work towards a higher level of NCCP certification. The Quest for Gold lottery made this possible. The awards ceremony was once again the crown jewel of the conference, an opportunity for top coaches to be honoured by their peers for the ongoing and significant contributions they make to both their sports and athletes. Wilson, also a member of the Oshawa Sports Hall of Fame, was honoured for her work in baton twirling. "We're so proud of all our award recipients and the positive impact they have on the Ontario sport community and their respective communities," said Susan Kitchen, Coaches Association of Ontario's executive director. "All nine award winners have been extremely influential in their roles and deserve to be recognized and celebrated."
