National Coaches Week wraps up in BC

Sep 29, 2015

National Coaches Week in BC wrapped up with a bang on Monday as viaSport announced the five winners of our #ThanksCoach contest.

Athletes were asked to submit a photo with their coach using the hashtag #ThanksCoach on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to enter their coach for the chance to win a prize from TeamSnap, the BC Lions, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, and the Vancouver Canucks. 

Photo submissions were entered into a random draw on Monday, September 28 and the winning posts were retweeted and re-posted on each platform. Thanks to everyone for the great nominations!
