US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC) is happy to reveal that the nomination period has opened for the 2013 Coach of the Year Awards. The OSC will honor coaches in five categories who have distinguished themselves at the youth, national and international levels. The awards are a part of the United States Olympic Committee’s (USOC) Coach Recognition Program, which highlights the accomplishments and contributions of U.S. coaches who train athletes at all levels of Olympic and Paralympic sports.

All accomplishments eligible for review by the panel are required to have taken place in 2013. Additionally, each nominee must be actively coaching in 2014, or be less than one year removed from their date of retirement.

5. 'Doc' Counsilman Science Award

The 'use of science in sport' includes, but is not limited to, biomechanics, nutrition, psychology, strength and conditioning, exercise physiology, etc.

In February, the OSC will announce the winners of US Sailing’s 2013 Coach of the Year Awards. The committee will then submit the list of honorees to the USOC for potential recognition as Coach of the Year Awards recipients across all Olympic and Paralympic sports. The USOC will announce the National Coach of the Year Award sometime in the late spring.

The goals of the USOC’s Coaching Recognition Program are to recognize the accomplishments and contributions coaches make to sports at all levels of athlete development and to elevate the status of coaching as a profession.
