About the Categories

Awarding local “visionaries” who mobilise community

Awarding “sportsmen” who positively impacted their
communities by organising friendly games and mentoring the
best players to represent at local, district and provincial levels.
Mentoring is an effective and powerful learning opportunity for
both mentee and mentor and one we believe will form part of
a wider sports development drive in both the immediate and
long term future.
This award recognizes individuals who have developed sport
mentoring programmes based on three principles:
• Educating and developing young men and women on the
principles of good sportsmenship.
• Creating a diverse group of individuals with a range of skills
to best support the development of high performance ethics

local sporting codes
In doing so, we will create a resource of individuals who
we hope will play a significant role in engaging youth as
ambassadors through sports.

back to their communities in sustainable projects.
