Nominations open for the North East Disability Sport Awards
14 December 2017
Nominations are now open for the 2017 North East Disability Sports Awards.
The North East Disability Sports Awards celebrate the fantastic achievements and contributions that athletes, coaches, clubs and schools have made to disability sport across the region. The event is in its 15th year and is always fiercely contested.
Whilst performing on the world stage is the goal for many, the Awards recognise a much broader range of achievement and endeavour. The performance categories include Male and Female Personality, Young Male and Young Female Achiever and Team and Coach of the Year. There are also awards for Service to Sport, Participation and Schools and Clubs. The 2016 awards saw 98 individuals and clubs nominated for the ten awards reflecting the increasing interest and participation in disability sport in the region.
Triple Paralympic Champion Stephen Miller is once again supporting the event through his Community Interest Company ‘SMILE Through Sport’. Stephen said, ”There are some extremely talented sportspeople in the North East, and some exceptional clubs, coaches and volunteers who are dedicated to developing opportunities for disabled people to take part in sport. They do fantastic work and I hope a lot of people take the opportunity to nominate them to give them the recognition they deserve.”
Nominations for the 2017 awards can be made by completing the online form at www.nedsa.co.uk or contact your local County Sport Partnership office detailed below to request a hard copy form. The closing date for nominations is Sunday 28 January 2018.
The awards ceremony will be held at Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham on Monday 19 March 2018.
