Help recognise outstanding members of our sporting community

The Hawkesbury is home to so many amazing sports men and women who not only achieve great things on the field but also make sure our local clubs run efficiently. If you know someone who has made an outstanding sporting accomplishment or dedicates countless hours to a club in a support role or as a coach or manager, you should nominate them for the Hawkesbury Sports Awards proudly sponsored by Hawkesbury City Council, Windsor RSL and Vintage FM.

Nominations close on 28 March 2016 and community members are encourage to jump online and complete a nomination form.

Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Kim Ford explained the new awards. “The new Sports Awards acknowledge the sporting accomplishments of community members as well as the contributions of individuals to sporting clubs through support roles.”

“Recognising members of our sporting community is extremely important. Whether these contributions and accomplishments are at a local, district, state or national level, in the canteen, as a coach or manager – nothing is too big or too small for these awards,” he added.
