Lethbridge Sport Council is excited to announce their Call for Nominations for the 7th Annual Lethbridge Sport Council Achievement Awards. These awards recognize and showcase excellence and spirit in sport including athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, and sport leaders.
2016 was a significant year for sport development in Lethbridge. Not only did our city play host to a number of events, including the Tour of Alberta and the Southern Alberta Summer games, but we watched as local athletes participated and excelled on the Olympic Stage. New facilities opened their doors, and organizations are thriving. In the background are many dedicated volunteers and administrators that help give our athletes a home advantage and the rest of us something to cheer about, not to mention the business community that continues to provide financial support for athletes and events.
“The Achievement Awards are a celebration of how volunteers have contributed to sport, achievements in sport and the demonstration of character on and off the field of play. We encourage individuals and clubs to submit nominations for achievements at every level of competition, from grassroots to high performance.” said Susan Eymann, Executive Director of the Lethbridge Sport Council.”
