September 17 to 25, 2022 is National Coaches Week!
This week is a time to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. This week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play in sports. If you've had a coach that has made a significant impact on you, take a few minutes to say #ThanksCoach #MerciCoach.
The NDFC would also like to use this week to heighten awareness of our National Dart Coaching Certification Program.
