In early January, Region 3 ran a coaching symposium organized and lead by Chris Lawson. All of the programming was offered free of charge to the coaches and paid for by the Region.
Started when Lawson was the acting Coaching Chair for his region, it was agreed that a budget would be set to support coach development as it was critical for club growth. The amount was established at the Regional Annual General Meeting for the Coaching Chair to organize a program and utilize the budget. As the Region felt that attendees should not be out of pocket for the cost of being a better volunteer and meeting certification standards, the entire weekend was free of charge to coaches registered in Region 3.
