2019 Ken Thom Memorial Coaching Award

To honour the memory and contributions of our former president and a long-time wheelchair athletics coach, the late Ken Thom, the Ontario Para Network established the Ken Thom Memorial Coaching Award – an award to be presented annually to an adaptive sports coach in Ontario who embodies the passion, knowledge and skills that made Ken such a cherished member of the ONPARA organization.

It is with great honour that we currently seek nominations for the inaugural Ken Thom Memorial Coaching Award.

Individuals can nominate a deserving coach by simply completing and submitting the nomination form electronically prior to August 31, 2019. The award recipient will be announced during National Coaches Week from September 21-29, 2019 and will be awarded $250.

Further details and nomination forms can be found on the ONPARA website
