Pam Ross, Sport BC, 2019 Coach of the Year
At Sport BC’s gala event on March 13, 2019, Pam Ross was awarded “2019 Coach of the Year”. This is truly an extraordinary achievement since Pam’s award is not only Karate sport specific but over the 25 major sports represented by Sport BC. Pam’s award is well-deserved because of her many years as a coach in Karate BC and at the national level with Karate Canada. Pam is a long-time member of Sato-Ha Courtenay Karate Club.
Akira Sato, Karate Canada 9th Dan
