FW: Surrey Local Authority Sports Awards

Dear All

On the back of a successful County Sports Awards event last year we are looking to hold our 2008 event sometime in October and we just wanted to gauge when local authority and NGB events are taking place this year.

We are aware that not all local authorities / NGBs hold events, that is fine, but I want to see how many events will be taking place and be able to fit into the county event in October.  As yet we do not have a fixed date and venue but we will be releasing this shortly, we are hoping it will be mid October at the Royal Holloway University, Egham.

Can I ask that you please let me know if you have dates, provisional or confirmed so we can have an understanding of what is being delivered?  If at all possible it would be nice to see your catergory list and criteria if you have any also.

The structure of the county event will not change but the criteria for some of the awards will be tighter than last year so we can make sure we have more than 2 nominations to regional and national events.

With regards to the award categories, the following will still be included:

  • Sports Personality of the Year
  • Young Sports Personality of the Year
  • Sports Club of the Year
  • Coach Of the Year
  • Young Coach of the Year
  • Sports team of the Year
  • Young Sports Team of the Year
  • Disability Sports Award
  • Outstanding Service to Sports Award
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Young Volunteer of the Year

And this year we will hopefully be included a new award Community Sports Coach of the Year which will only be open to those coaches that have been employed and deployed through the government funding scheme Community Sports Coach Scheme.

If you have any queries regarding this years event then please do not hesitate to get in touch on the number below.

Many Thanks

Surrey Sports Awards Committee
