Community & Sports Excellence Awards

    The  Community & Sport 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.
