BC School Sports Names Ron Van Driel Male Coach of the Year
BVCS extends warm congratulations to Ron Van Driel on his recognition by BC School Sports as Male Coach of the Year.
Van Driel has spent forty years at Bulkley Valley Christian School as athletic director, teacher, coach, parent and volunteer. He has been integral in starting and promoting the athletics program at BVCS. During his retirement party, many former students, parents and colleagues reflected on how "The Ragin' V" has been a formative and positive influence in the lives of his students.
Van Driel's recognition as BC School Sports Male Coach of the Year is a deserving accolade. According to BC School Sports, The Merit, Honour, Male and Female Coach of the Year, and Outstanding School awards are presented annually to individuals in the BCSS community that continuously embody the BCSS core values of growth, fulfillment, sportsmanship, and equity throughout their contribution to school sport. These awards recognize and celebrate coaches, officials, and sport management volunteers for their long-time commitment and involvement in BC School Sports both on and off the field, keeping school sport alive in the province.
