2019 Ski & Snowboard Australia Community Sport Awards
QT Canberra, 1 London Circuit - Thursday 7th November – 6.00pm to 10.00pm
This is the second of two major Participation initiatives for 2019.
Established to compliment the Australian Ski & Snowboard Performance Awards being held in Melbourne on Wednesday May 1st, the Ski & Snowboard Australia Community Sport Awards have been established to acknowledge and recognise athletes, coaches, volunteers, clubs, schools, resorts, administrators and programs at the development and pathway level of snow sports. We anticipate a National audience of between 300 to 350 attendees.
The timing of the Community Sport Awards ties in with the end of the domestic winter season in Australia, is held outside of school holidays, and before many athletes and presenters depart for training and competitions in the Northern season. They are also being held during the 2019 National Participation Conference, also being held at the same venue in Canberra, with many attendees of the conference likely to also attend the awards.
An SSA working group will manage the development of this major initiative, with the wider Snowsports community now being consulted on the areas of the sport that should be recognised.
This event is planned to develop into an annual and very significant Awards and Celebration evening that enables us to promote and acknowledge SSA Programs and Activities at Community – Participation – Development – Pathways levels. There will also be a legacy component of this event, which will recognise previous and high-profile members of the Australian Snowsports community, in a National Snowsports Hall of Fame, a Legacy List, and enduring Life Membership.
Further details will be released mid-year.
