SPORT ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS
Most Counties make Sport Personality Awards each year. Many Local Education Authorities do so as well. There is also the B.B.C. Many are preceded by Local Authority presentations although some use those who run the local Leisure Centre.
The awards are usually for individuals, including coaches, officials and volunteers, and teams. There are male and female, senior and junior, able and disabled awards. The club executive will willingly support any all applications which are made. The club has had great success this year and this is one way of letting the general public know.
As each body has its own procedures this is a summary only. Be sure your school knows what your sporting activities and successes are outside school hours.
