Sport Volunteer Awards
THANK YOU FOR GETTING BEHIND THE PEOPLE BEHIND YOUR SPORT
The Sport Volunteer Awards offer a simple way for Kiwis to recognise not just coaches but all 800,000 volunteers at the heart of New Zealand community sport – referees, administrators, fundraisers, kit-washers, coaches – the lot!
We all know that sport is a huge part of Northland communities and often plays an important role in many people’s lives. For those that don’t do much to say thanks or even those that do, the awards provide a great opportunity to say ‘Thanks’ for all that our sport volunteers do to make sport happen.
Thank you to everyone that took the time to say thank you to a sport volunteer, I’m sure it would have made their day and hopefully it could have even kept them volunteering for a wee while longer!
Keep an eye out for the final list of volunteers who were nominated as well as the three regional winners over the coming weeks.
One overall winner will be selected to attend the Sport NZ Sport and Recreation Awards and go up against 16 other Regional winners for top honours and be crowned New Zealand’s Top Sport Volunteer 2012.
