The Ba­got­ville Men's Ball Ho­ckey Team won the CAF Team of the Year award, while its coach, Cap­tain Gerard Ca­ron, was na­med Coach of the Year for his hard work and de­di­ca­tion to ma­ny ho­ckey and ball ho­ckey teams in Ba­got­ville. This is the first time since the award was crea­ted in 1990 that a team from CFB Ba­got­ville has won this ho­nor. The men's ball ho­ckey team had a great2017- 2018 sea­son, win­ning the gold me­dal last spring. It was the Ba­got- ville team’s fourth vic­to­ry in five years at this cham­pion­ship. The coach, Capt Ca­ron, contri­bu­ted to this vic­to­ry, but it was al­so his work with both the men's and wo­men's ice ho­ckey teams ( 2nd and 4th place at the re­gio­nal cham­pion­ships), as well as his de­di­ca­tion to the Of­fi­cer’s Mess ho­ckey team and his par­ti­ci­pa­tion in the CAF Re­gio­nal Ve­te­rans Ho­ckey Cham­pion­ship that contri­bu­ted to him being cho­sen for the Coach of the Year award.

It is in­ten­ded to ho­nor the CAF's best ath­letes, coaches, of­fi­cials and teams of the year.
