OTTAWA, ON: Skate Canada is excited to announce that Monica Lockie is a recipient of the Community NCCP Coach Developer Award, created by the Coaching Association of Canada and presented by Investors Group.

The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) created the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Coach Developer Awards to recognize outstanding individuals who go above and beyond to develop certified and trained NCCP coaches in their sport, their communities, and beyond.

“Monica has been an excellent ambassador for our sport and a champion of our learn to skate program, CanSkate. Her knowledge of the sport and her passion to drive information and ideas has been critical in the success of the development of CanSkate,” said Jeff Partrick, Skate Canada Director Coaching and Skating Programs. 

 “We have always appreciated and valued our coach developers who are out in the community inspiring coaches to be the best that they can be,” said Cyndie Flett, Vice-President of Research & Development at the CAC. “I am excited we have a tangible way to honour these dedicated individuals.”

Richard Irish, Vice President, Community Affairs and Marketing Support at Investors Group said: “Investors Group is committed to recognizing community leaders who motivate others to become active in their communities. We are honoured to have teamed up with the Coaching Association of Canada in celebrating these inspiring people.”

Lockie was presented with the award earlier this month in front of her peers at the Skate Canada Board Meeting.
