SPORTS clubs across Bromsgrove are being urged to put forward their nominations for this year’s annual sports awards.
Now in their fifth year, the awards recognise sporting achievements within the district and acknowledge local people who have dedicated their time and effort to a sport they love.
This year awards will be given out in categories including junior male sports person, junior female sports person, senior male sports person, senior female sports person, coach of the year, volunteer of the year, club of the year, junior team of the year, young volunteer of the year, disabled sports person, outstanding contribution and the be active award.
Once the nomination deadline has passed, a shortlist of nominees for each category will be determined by a panel and will then be invited to attend an awards ceremony, with winners being revealed on the day.
Following feedback from last year and due to its increasing popularity, the awards ceremony will take place at this year’s annual High 5 event, which also includes a special Community Games ‘It’s A Knockout’ style competition.
Nominees will be able to invite friends and family along to support them and there will be a family picnic. There will also be the opportunity to hear about the fantastic local sporting achievements throughout 2012 and the chance to speak to local sports clubs to find out how to get involved.
The High 5 event takes place at Sanders Park on September 9 from 11am to 4pm. The awards ceremony will take place on stage from 12pm to 1.30pm and will be broadcast on a big screen in the park. The Community Games competition will take place from 2pm to 3pm.
