Nominate your local coaching hero

Do you know a dedicated coach who is deserving of recognition?

Someone like Erin Culnane, the winner of last year’s Wally Foreman Coach of the Year?

If so, it’s time to nominate them for this year’s award.

The South West Academy of Sport is currently accepting applications for the 2019 Wally Foreman Coach of the Year.

SWAS chief executive officer Bernice Butlion encouraged people to put forward the names of local coaching heroes and get them in the running to receive the accolade.

“We want to hear about coaches who are making a difference in the local community,” Butlion said.

“It doesn’t matter what level they coach at. This award aims to officially recognise dedicated individuals who don’t necessarily get paid but who love to coach.”

The accolade is named after the late Wally Foreman, a sports administrator and commentator who was asked by Bunbury business identity Rolf Stene to carry out the feasibility planning for the South West Academy of Sport.

The winner of the award will be announced at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on Friday November 8 2019 as part of the annual SWAS awards night.
