As you have all been previously notified, there will be no Secondary School Sports Awards taking place this year.
We are still holding all the district awards as in previous years along with the addition of a new awards held in Hamilton (see details below).
For all schools that have awards take place in your district, you will be able to nominate your athletes/teams through into their District Sports Awards - this will also be where you will nominate coaches, administrators and officials. We have also created a new category this year at a district level “Secondary School Contribution to Sport Award” – this award replaces the previous Secondary School Leadership award.
This year we are trialling a Hamilton Sporting Volunteers Ceremony, supported by the Hamilton City Council in Hamilton; this is where Hamilton schools will have the opportunity to nominate students for the Secondary School Contribution to Sport Award and Administrators.
The categories at this ceremony will be:
Administrator of the Year (this covers all clubs and school nominations)
Secondary School Student Contribution to Sport
Sport Maker of the Year (for “grassroots” coaches, officials, managers etc) – the high performance nominations will go through for consideration as finalists for the Brian Perry Waikato Regional Sports Awards
Service to Sport (20+ years contribution to sport)
Any junior sportsperson/team nominations will go through for consideration as finalists for the Brian Perry Waikato Regional Sports Awards.
We have created an Excel spreadsheet for you to enter your nominations into (this will be forwarded to Sport Coordinators), however we couldn’t create it for all categories so you will need to follow this Sport Waikato link to enter your administrators and officials.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to email Gilly Alexander or phone her on 027 289 9807.
