Sep 6, 2018 | Uncategorized

National Coaches Week is a week to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. Coaches are a valuable contributor to communities across Canada and coaching contributes significantly to volunteerism in Canada.

This special week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play by simply saying #ThanksCoach. Make sure that you partake in celebrating the important role of the coach during National Coaches Week September 22 – 30, 2018 !

How You Can Participate

The AEF is proud to celebrate Alberta’s diverse group of NCCP certified Equestrian Instructors/Coaches. In celebration of National Coaches week, AEF would like to encourage you to recognize your instructor/coach in a few different ways, for your chance to win both you and your instructor/coach an AEF Swag bag. To be entered into the draw for these great swag bags, you can thank your instructor/coach by:

  • Tagging the AEF ( @AB_Equestrian ) in a photo of you and your instructor/coach on Instagram using ALL of the following hashtags:
    • #ThanksCoach
    • #AEF40
    • #AEFEquine

    • Share a high resolution photo
    • Refrain from water marked photos
    • Include a few sentences why your instructor/coach is important to you

You may also choose to send a special note to your instructor/coach to show them just how much you really appreciate them by using the custom #ThanksCoach ecard:

Send this e-card to as many instructors/coaches as you like. This small gesture will mean so much to your coach.
