Last weekend, athletes, fans and family members eagerly lined up to see their favourite Coach walk the red carpet at the Varsity Theatre in downtown Toronto, at the sold out screening of the 2015 Ontario Coaching Excellence Awards. Luda Zakharenko, head coach of London’s Forest City Diving Club, was the deserving recipient of the 2015 Good-To-Great Coaching Excelence Award, presented by the Coaches Association of Ontario.

“We’re so proud of all our award recipients and the positive impact they have on the Ontario sport community,” says Susan Kitchen, Executive Director of the Coaches Association of Ontario. “All nine awards winners have been extremely influential in their roles and deserve to be recognized and celebrated.”
