CanoeKayak Canada formally recognized several of its coaches through award presentations held at its Annual Summit and Coaches Conference in Ottawa on Saturday night.

Among the award categories were awards for coach recognition, and two local names made the list.

Brian Hammer, of the Pitt Meadows Paddling Club, and Piotr Majewski of the Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club both made the winner’s list.

The pair were part of a list of coaches whose athletes were selected to a national team this year or achieved a gold medal at national championships.

A total of 43 coaches in sprint, slalom and canoe polo were awarded.
