Wests launches Sports Volunteer of the Year Awards Program 2022

Posted at 21 Feb 2022

It is estimated that over 2.3million sports volunteers dedicate more than 158 million hours to sport each year making them the backbone of the industry and undoubtedly some of the most passionate and selfless volunteers in the country.


We know that the commitment of volunteers is vital to the successful running of any sports club and association and that many would not be able to run without these volunteers who fill critical roles on and off the field each week.


This year, we are pleased to introduce a NEW awards program to celebrate and recognise the incredible network of local volunteers we have in this region.


The campaign will come to end during National Volunteer Week in May, Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering.


Recognising winners across 2 award categories, the awards will recognise the exemplary contributions made by officials, presidents, coaches, administrators, mums, and dads who dedicate themselves and their time to their sport for no other reason than that they love it!


We will also take this opportunity to present distinguished Long Service Awards presented to recipients who have given exceptional service to their sport over decades.


Submissions will open on Monday 21st February 2022 in the following categories:

  • Wests Community Sport Youth Volunteer of the Year (Under 21yrs)
  • Wests Community Sport Volunteer of the Year (21yrs+)
  • Wests Community Sport Long Service Award (15, 20, 25, 30 years’ service)

Nominations are open to Wests Sports Council members only, who are directly sponsored by Wests Group Macarthur.
