The Steve Bush Coach of the Year is awarded to recognize a coach working at the national level, who has contributed significantly to the development of their athletes or teams, or has contributed to program development for coaching. The above award is presented at the Annual General Meeting of WSWC. Recipients are selected from among the received nominations by WSWC.
In 2013 the award was re-named after long time coach, and Canadian coaching legend Steve Bush. The award recognizes those coaches that follow in Steve's incredible footsteps and help develop the skills, passion, ethics and commitment of athletes in Canadian Towed Water Sports.
