    • CAC recognizes CCC for Women in Coaching Activities

      June 14, 2005

      The women in coaching program would like to recognize Cross Country Canada for their commitment to developing new opportunities for women coaches.  This commitment was recognized at the 2004 Sport Leadership Conference in Winnipeg during the Women in Coaching Luncheon and has been posted on the Coaching Association of Canada website http://www.coach.ca/WOMEN/e/best_practices/index.htm

      Cross Country Canada‚Äôs Women in Coaching project is an excellent example of what can happen if women coaches are given the opportunity and support to excel in their careers.  Specifically, the annual workshops that are held allow for women coaches to build relationships and enter a learning environment that is comfortable.  These workshops were successful in teaching new techniques, sharing new ideas while strengthening the network of women coaches in sport across Canada.
