South Waikato News - - SPORT -

It’s that time of year again – Sport Waikato is look­ing to ac­knowl­edge sport­ing ex­cel­lence in the re­gion.

Nom­i­na­tions for the 2015 Dis­trict Sports Awards are open un­til Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 2. 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, to be held on Jan­uary 28, 2016.

Sport Waikato gen­eral manager Mike Maguire said the awards sea­son comes at a very suc­cess­ful sport­ing pe­riod for the greater Waikato re­gion.

‘‘ We have lots to cel­e­brate, recog­nis­ing sport­ing tal­ent in our re­gion is very im­por­tant,’’ he said.

South Waikato Dis­trict Co­or­di­na­tor Lisa Mansell wants each club, school and sports or­gan­i­sa­tion to take the time to fill in a nom­i­na­tion form, so that the achieve­ments of a dis­trict can be high­lighted.

‘‘ Sport Waikato makes it as easy as pos­si­ble to nom­i­nate on­line. From Ref­eree/Um­pire of the Year to Team of the Year – our cat­e­gories re­flect the var­i­ous roles in sport. I urge the com­mu­nity to nom­i­nate our lo­cal sports peo­ple,’’ Mansell said.

Sport Waikato Dis­trict Sports Awards events will take place in Taupo, South Waikato, Waikato, Waipa, Mata­mata- Pi­ako, Wait­omo, Hau­raki/ ThamesCoro­man­del and Otoro­hanga, dur­ing the month of Novem­ber.
