Tamas Buday Sr and Rob Baert recognized for Coaching Contributions

OTTAWA – CanoeKayak Canada has recognized the contributions of Tamas Buday Sr and Rob Baert through its Coaching Excellence Awards.

Tamas Buday Sr. of Mississauga, ON is the winner of the CEO’s Award of Coaching Excellence. This award is in recognition of a coach going above and beyond to contribute to the advancement of CanoeKayak in addition to their regular coaching duties. Buday Sr. has dedicated 25 years of coaching service to the National Team. He continues to travel to paddling clubs across Canada to work with athletes and share his knowledge by mentoring coaches. After hours he can often be found fixing boats and paddles to ensure athletes have what they need to be successful.

Rob Baert of Senobe Aquatic Club in Dartmouth, NS is the winner of the Club Development Award. Baert has been instrumental in initiating and leading Senobe’s PaddleALL program which now has 17 paddlers. He has grown participation at the club and has introduced many new paddlers to the sport by setting up lean to paddle camps.

Coaches whose athletes were selected to a National Team this year or achieved a gold medal at National Championships received the Coach Recognition Award. A total of 44 coaches were awarded with 13 coaches winning the award for the first time.
