Waterloo Minor Hockey Association coach Craig Campbell was one of 10 skippers honoured by the Coaches Association of Ontario
for dedication and commitment. Campbell, who has spent more than a dozen years volunteering behind the bench, was named the winner of the Male Grassroots Coach award on Saturday.
"Just being nominated, never mind being selected as the winner of the Grassroots Coaching Award is truly humbling," said Campbell in a news release.
"It reassures me that what I am doing as a coach is having an impact with youth in our community."
The online ceremony
was hosted by Olympic hurdler Perdita Felicien and helped kickstart National Coaches Week
Campbell coached the Minor Atom MD Black team this past season and, as winner of the award, received $500 to purchase sporting goods from a store of his choice.
Congratulations Coach Campbell!
