Allerdale Sports Awards 2013 Nominations Open!

28 August 2013

Just over 12 months ago the Closing Ceremony for the London 2012 Games took place, bringing to an end some fantastic experiences for viewers and participants alike, not just for those in The Games but locally it inspired our communities to get on their bikes, pick up a tennis racket and get involved.

Allerdale Borough Council with support from SPAA members are coordinating the second annual Allerdale Sports Awards which will take place on the 1 November at the Wave Centre in Maryport and is an opportunity to recognise our own local dedicated and talented athletes and volunteers.

The award categories include:

Sports Personality
Junior Sports Personality
Rising Star
Coach of the Year
Volunteer of the Year
Performance award for a person with a disability
Young Leader
Physical Activity Initiative
Team of the Year

The awards are for those individuals or teams who deserve to be acknowledged for their achievements and commitment and who have had an outstanding year in sport in the last twelve months.

The nominations for the awards open on the 30 August and will close at midnight on the 26 September. All nominations can be done online through the Active Cumbria Website, with the exception of Sports Person of the Year where nominations are put forward through the Times and Star website or hard copies are available.

Winners of all the category’s will then be put forward for the prestigious County Sports Awards in November at the Low wood Hotel.

Executive Councillor Mark Fryer with responsibilities for economic growth, says “There really isn’t a better time for this event with the Tour of Britain and the Rugby League World Cup 2013 on our doorstep, it all helps to raise the profile of those who work hard behind the scenes as well as the dedication of those who participate on the field… or in the pool… or on the court.”

Tickets for the event can be purchased from The Wave Centre from the 11 September.
