Central Sport to Present Recognition and Celebration Awards at Xplore Sport Day
(RED DEER, AB) – Central Sport will celebrate and honour athletes, teams, and local sport organizations at Xplore Sport Day presented by the City of Red Deer on May 13, 2023.
With previous plans set for a Recognition and Celebration event to be held in early May, deliberations with the City of Red Deer and local sport organizations generated important feedback which led to the decision to pivot and present awards in honour of accomplishments from 2022 at Xplore Sport Day.
“With Central Sport’s past participation in Xplore Sport Day, this felt like a natural progression to showcase our remarkable non-profit organization to a broader audience of central Alberta residents and celebrate the accomplishments of our local athletes, volunteers, teams, and local sport organizations together.” Trevor Thomas, CEO of Central Sport.
Winners have been chosen and contacted and will be announced in the following categories: Youth Athlete of the Year, Team of the Year, LSO Volunteer Recognition (Certificates), Volunteer of the Year, Kendall Dunkle Memorial Award – Minor Coach of the Year, and Lifetime Sport Achievement.
The awards will take place at 10:00 am. Further information and an award schedule will be available HERE.
