  • Given up so much of their own time to volunteer in the community in any capacity.
  • Made a significant impact to their community, club, organisation, or school to help during lockdown or on return to activity.
  • Shown a commitment to teamwork and supporting others and carried this on through lockdown.


Nominations and voting for this year's Sports Awards are now closed.

The shortlist for each category will be announced mid November, and the winners crowned at the virtual awards ceremony on Facebook Live at 7pm on 3rd December - get the date in the diary, we promise it'll be one not to miss!
