Our 3 Award Categories

Sport Acknowledgment Awards

The Sport Acknowledgement Awards give each sporting code in the North Harbour region the opportunity to acknowledge an individual who has excelled in their commitment to their sport.

Excellence Awards

    Excellences Award categories highlight the outstanding performances by individual athletes, teams, coaches, referees/umpires, volunteers and events in the North Harbour region. This category recognises the achievements from one sporting year. This year we have introduced two new awards – Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion, and Community Impact Award.

    Legends of Harbour Sports Hall of Fame

    The Legends of Harbour honours athletes who have achieved excellence at the highest level and have also given back to sport in the Harbour Region. These nominations were put before an independent judging panel and selected based on a setlist of criteria.
