If you know someone who's made a positive impact on their sport, club, school or community, the COV Awards are a chance to recognise their invaluable contribution.

It has been a busy year for coaches, officials, and volunteers, and it has been amazing to see everyone involved in sport adapt and rise to the challenges following Covid-19, working to make sport inclusive and welcoming for all participants.

Nominating someone for a COV Award is an opportunity to recognise and thank your coaches, officials, or volunteers, as well as raise the profile of your sport, club, school or organisation.

All nominees will be contacted to thank them for their hard work and contribution to sport. The winners will be shortlisted and celebrated at a special awards ceremony in October.
