Nominations for the East Renfrewshire Coaching, Officiating and Volunteering Awards are now open. Click here to nominate.
East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure's Sports Development and Active Schools team have created the new sport awards for 2020, to recognise and reward the hard work and commitment of local coaches, officials, school teachers and volunteers who contribute and make a difference to sport in East Renfrewshire.
The awards are a way of saying a big 'thank you' to all the vital people delivering sport in East Renfrewshire and represent a unique way to recognise coaching, officiating, teaching and volunteering achievement across schools, clubs and communities in the area.
The contribution made by individuals is immense and their dedication and hard work is central to ensuring excellent sporting opportunities for all in East Renfrewshire.
You can nominate coaches, officials and volunteers, either known personally or through school, club or local community activity. The top three candidates from each category will then be invited to our award ceremony on 10th June 2020 where the winner will be announced.
