B.C. School Sports Coach of the Year Award recognizes the outstanding achievements of a coach.

That person guides their athletes to success in sport through their philosophy of fair play and sportsmanship. They lead by example and consistently demonstrate a dedication to lifelong learning and continuous improvement.

They also have to have put in the time, as the winner has to have been actively involved in coaching high school athletics for a minimum of 10 years.

It describes Sharon Shaigec perfectly.

The coach of Vernon’s Fulton Secondary Maroons’ senior girls volleyball team exemplifies those characteristics daily in the gym, classroom and on the court.

Shaigec is one of four coaches named B.C. School Sports Coach of the Year.

The former Canadian women’s volleyball team player started her coaching career at Fulton in 1990. One of her best memories is winning the B.C. AAA high school girls championship in Prince George.

“The camaraderie between coaches, students, and teachers, the pep rallies and school spirit made this an incredible experience for me and my team,” said Shaigec to B.C. School Sports.

Asked during an interview by a Grade 12 district scholarship project student who her most influential coach was, Shaigec replied, “My first coach, a teacher in Grade 7, my last coach, my Canadian national volleyball team coach and all of my volleyball, basketball and track and field coaches in between.”
