CWOSSA Gordon McNally Award

The McNally Award is presented annually to one person in each District in the memory of Gordon McNally, a former Executive Director of CWOSSA. Through Professor McNally’s long term commitment to high school sport, CWOSSA began to develop its present organizational structure and evolved into the current Association that serves high school sport so effectively.

A recipient of the McNally Award should exemplify the same dedication, spirit and love of sport that made Professor McNally such an important leader in the early years of CWOSSA.

The criteria that should be used in selecting a person to receive this award:

  1. The person should exemplify the best characteristics of a teacher-coach such as good sportsmanship
  2. The person should have shown a long term dedication to the administration of high school sport at the district level by providing leadership as an Executive member and/or Director and/or Convenor.
  3. The person may also have provided leadership at the CWOSSA level as a convenor and/or Director.
