Awards & Recognition

The annual RCA Excellence Awards event is an opportunity to recognize the outstanding achievements and contributions of our volunteers, coaches and clubs. Many of these awards are selected based on nominations received by the Awards Committee from our membership.

RCA Awards Policy


RCA’s 2020 Excellence Awards will be presented virtually throughout January 2021 in the lead up to the RCA National Conference. 

2020 has certainly been the most challenging time for our community. The challenges brought on by the pandemic are profound in all facets of our daily lives and presented unique challenges for our sport. In this extraordinary year RCA wants to recognize the ‘COVID Champions’ who went above and beyond to support their club and their members. The RCA Awards Committee invites every club to nominate a person who was particularly instrumental in organizing the club’s response to the pandemic crisis.
