Put your choice forward for this year's Wally Foreman Coaches Award

Know an outstanding local sports coach who deserves to be recognised for their efforts? If you do, now is the time to put their name forward for an award.

People have until Monday October 31 to submit nominations for this year’s Wally Foreman Coaches Award.

An initiative of the South West Academy of Sport, the award is presented each year to an individual in the region who has attained a level of excellence in the field of coaching.

SWAS chief executive officer Bernice Butlion encouraged people to nominate themselves or someone they admire for the prize.

“This is our way of highlighting the amazing coaching talents we have in the region who give so much to sport,” she said.

“Over the years, we’ve had coaches honoured from disciplines ranging from surf life saving to golf and tennis.

“No matter the sport, we encourage you to nominate a South West coach whose performance sets them apart from their peers.”

The winner will be announced at the SWAS annual dinner and awards night at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre’s Cube Theatre on Friday December 2.

Nomination forms can be downloaded from www.swaswa.com.au .
