Waikato sport awards nominations now open
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.
