Time to recognise those in sport
Sport Waikato is looking to acknowledge 2016 sporting excellence in the region.
District Sports Awards nominations are now open until Friday, September 23.
Each Waikato district will have its own awards event with category winners going forward to be considered for the prestigious Brian Perry Waikato Regional Sports Awards, held on Thursday, January 26, 2017.
Sport Waikato general manager Mike Maguire said this awards season came with a focus around our Olympic athletes as well as another successful sporting season for the Waikato region.
‘‘We have lots to celebrate, being an Olympic year it creates more interest in sport – it reminds us to recognise sporting talent and volunteers within our region,’’ Maguire said.
