Nominations for Randwick City Council’s annual Sports Awards are now open! Families and sports fans alike are encouraged to nominate their local young athletes to acknowledge their excellence, commitment and achievement in sport.
Randwick City is known as the ‘sports coast’ because of the number of high profile sporting stars that have grown up and lived in this area. The Sporting Excellence Awards are an important way to showcase Randwick City’s next generation of sporting stars. There are three categories for nomination including:
Randwick City Junior Sports Award – Male and Female categories – open to primary school aged 5 to 12 years who live, attend school or are strongly affiliated with a sporting club in Randwick City.
Bradley Matthews Memorial Award for Sporting Excellence – open to school students aged 13 to 18 years who live, attend school or are strongly affiliated with a sporting club in Randwick City.
Randwick City Hall of Sporting Champions – open to all residents, this award acknowledges champions of decades past and present with their names displayed on an honour board in the foyer of the Bowen Library in Maroubra.
Previous inductees include cricketer, Simon Katich, horse trainer Gai Waterhouse, rugby legend Ewan McKenzie and Olympian Dennis Heussner OAM. Nominations can be made on Council’s website before Friday 13 August at 5pm. A panel of professional athletes will choose the finalists.
