Perhaps Canada's athletics coaching development program is succeeding in engendering the culture of effective leadership. For example, during the tremendously competitive 2011 NCAA Track and Field Championships, where 31 teams make it to the big meet out of 315 teams nationwide, at least twenty percent are coached by Canadians. Some of those coaches are, Peter Watson, the men's head cross-country and assistant track and field coach for the University of Virginia Cavaliers, Chris Rengifo with Eastern Kentucky University men's team, women's head coach Karen Harvey at Florida State University, Ricardo Santos coach of Iona College's women's team, Sean Cleary coach of the University of West Virginia women's team and Andrea Grove-McDonough who coaches the women at the University of Connecticut.
