THE LAUNCH OF THE 2017 DACORUM SPORTS AWARDS
The Sports Awards event is fast approaching!
The search is now on for talented sporting individuals, teams and clubs in our borough. Help us celebrate local sporting achievement by nominating your local sports heroes! Closing date for nominations is Friday 31st March 2017
Sportspace, Dacorum Sports Trust, in partnership with The Gazette Newspaper have launched this year’s Dacorum Sports Awards. As well as recognising those that actively participate in local sport, the Dacorum Sports Awards are also an excellent opportunity to reward those who work tirelessly behind the scenes in a coaching, administrative or official role. Amanda Colwill, Head of Sport said “We have a huge amount of sporting talent locally and the awards enable us to acknowledge and highlight this. The Sports Awards help us improve awareness of Sport in Dacorum, and encourages more people to get involved and to be more active!”
The 2017 Sports Awards will be hosted on Friday 19th May at Little Hay Golf Complex. The venue is set in 135 acres of countryside, which is a perfect back drop for celebrations and parties. Any award ceremony is only as good as the quality of nominations so we are calling on all local clubs, teams and individuals to support the event and send in their nominations! The judging panel will be made up of representatives from the Dacorum Sports Network, Dacorum School Sports Network, Dacorum Borough Council, Sportspace and the Gazette.
The categories this year are:
- Sports Person of the Year
- Club of the Year
- Team of the Year
- Community Coach of the Year
- Dacorum Sport Networks ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’
- The ‘Rising Star’ Award
- Volunteer of the Year
