Despite the restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to recognise the great work that coaches, officials and volunteers did in 2021.
To do this, we implemented the #COVChampions campaign. We encouraged the entire network to tell us all about the outstanding achievements by coaches, officials and volunteers seen in 2021. They can be any age, from any sport, or in any local area.
Here are some of the highlights from #COVChampions 2021!
