Association Spotlight: Toby Webb Coach Of The Year Awards


Established in 2005 through the NCHSAA Endowment Fund and generous donations from Toby Webb supporters, the Toby Webb ‘Coach of the Year’ Awards recognize two outstanding coaches annually, one male and one female.

This award seeks to recognize and honor coaches who have had an impact on the lives of student-athletes, and students in general, by encouraging them to succeed, helping to develop self-confidence, ambition, a sound work ethic, and other skills necessary for success in the students’ later lives. Furthermore, the coaches shall have a record of encouraging student-athletes to be well-rounded (i.e. displaying excellence in areas of scholarship, citizenship, music, etc.).

Finally, the coaches shall have a reputation amongst their respective peers and the athletic community for fair play, good sportsmanship, and the development of these attributes in their respective student-athletes.

For consideration, a coach must have a minimum of ten years of head coaching experience at an NCHSAA member school and must be actively coaching during the year of consideration for the award.

Each ‘Coach of the Year’ recipient will receive a $2,000 cash award and commemorative plaque and will be recognized at the NCHSAA Annual Meeting.

Nominations are accepted from peers and reviewed by a special selection committee, with the deadline for submission in November and winners introduced at the NCHSAA Annual Meeting.
