Nominations for the 2012 PRO-ACTIVE London Awards for Community Sport and Physical Activity are now open and are looking for a deserving candidate to be named the London Club and Coach of 2012.
The PRO-ACTIVE London Awards, sponsored by GLL, are the only regional awards which celebrate the contribution of thousands of people, the majority of whom are volunteers, who make it possible for so many people to take part.
PRO-ACTIVE London and Sports Coach UK who sponsor the Coach/Instructor of the Year award are are looking for an outstanding candidate that has gone out of their way to encourage people to participate at their club.
We are looking for a sports coach or physical activity instructor who has successfully encouraged people to either participate for the first time, stay in their activity or increased their participant’s skill and level or performance. Whether it’s through their innovative ideas, targeting of under-represented groups or individual successes the candidate should stand out from the crowd and be an excellent example to others.
The Club of the Year Award sponsored by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation will be awarded to an exceptional club that has gone out of its way to encourage people to participate either at their club, or within their chosen sport. Whether it is through innovative ideas, specific targeting within the local community or establishing local partnerships, the club should act as a role model for other clubs to follow.
The nominations will be reviewed by an experienced panel of experts and three shortlisted nominees will be invited to the Awards ceremony which will take place at the Kia Oval on the evening of the 27th April 2012. The evening will see hundreds of people from local sports clubs and community organisations rub shoulders with sports stars and enjoy a champagne reception, three course meal and entertainment throughout the evening.
If you would like to nominate a club or coach for these award or for any other award category, you can do so by visiting the awards website and submitting your nomination, before the deadline of February 29th 2012
