We want to reward the coaches, the referees, the club officials and all the other dedicated heroes who work tirelessly all year round purely for the love of their sport.”
Last year’s glittering awards ceremony was attended by more than 200 people at Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre. The event was hosted by Paralympic gold medal rower Naomi Riches MBE and former England hockey player Roger Dakin.
The categories are: Active Workplace of the Year; Club of the Year; Project of the Year; School of the Year; Terry Cook Unsung Hero of the Year; Volunteer of the Year; Young Leader of the Year; Community Coach of the Year; Performance Coach of the Year.
