BFL Female Coach of the Year

BFL Female Coach of the Year


There is arguably no more important role in hockey than that of the coach, who is tasked with guiding young players not only on the ice, but off it as well. They are leaders in hockey, and leaders in life.

Hockey Canada and BFL Canada are on the hunt for the country’s best women’s hockey coaches, and they are calling on players and parents from coast to coast to coast to nominate coaches who have made significant contributions to the game.

What can my coach win?

National winners of the BFL Female Coach of the Year award will receive a $2,500 bursary, a customized Team Canada jersey, a five-year subscription to the Hockey Canada Network, a Hockey Canada merchandise package and a tablet.

Provincial and territorial winners will receive a $1,000 bursary.

Who is choosing the winners?

The selection committee includes a trio of Canadian women’s hockey leaders – Olympic gold medallists Cassie Campbell-Pascall, Gina Kingsbury and Caroline Ouellette. They are joined by Steve Lacoste, vice-president of sports and leisure with BFL, and Teal Gove, manager of hockey development with Hockey Canada.

Congratulations to the 2021 national winners:

A players’ coach, Noémie Tanguay has found success behind the bench.
A dedicated coach to her players, also supports other women coaches.

Congratulations to the 2021 provincial and territorial winners:
