About the Awards
Do you know someone that deserves to be recognised for all they are doing to help people enjoy, engage and excel in sport?
The #SportMaker Awards are all about shining a light on the local sporting workforce – the people and projects that make sport happen. It’s your chance to say “thank you”.
We’ll be recognising the outstanding contribution of coaches, officials, volunteers and projects over the previous 12 months and the role they play in encouraging people to enjoy, engage and excel in sport.
