THE PETE BEACH AWARD
The Pete Beach Award is named in honour of Mr. N. A. Pete Beach, a former Executive Director of O.F.S.A.A., who died in 1984. Mr. Beach recognized, early in his career, that school sport possessed a substantial and verifiable trait of the capacity to contribute beyond sport to a young persons's future career and life. For the next fifty years, he devoted his energy to the organizational development of school sport and thus to the service of young people.
In view of the complexity of the developmental process, it is a rare educator indeed who has the capacity to utilize the medium of school sport in such a way as to positively and sufficiently influence students in the remainder of their lives. That educator is one who consistently provides an impression of stability and optimism; one who enjoys the company, and the respect of young people; one who embodies and initiates by example, the highest traditions of the sports person; one who best typifies the true function of the teacher-coach - a source of discipline, a mentor and a friend.

c) Active in the administration of N.O.S.S.A. activities.
