Coach of the Year (Male and Female)

The 2018 Victorian Coach of the Year award is a great opportunity to celebrate the work that fantastic coaches in the community undertake each season. The role of a coach is a demanding and often thankless one.A great coach shouldn't only be defined by how many wins or loses they have during the season, but the long lasting impact that they have on the development and enjoyment of their players. A candidate who is dedicated to continual learning and personal growth, which is the sign of someone willing to be better each time they coach, is the individual we would like to reward.
