Each Spring, the Lethbridge Sport Council honours the sport community for their spirit, drive, and commitment of our athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and sport leaders.
These two awards honour outstanding community sport heroes for their character and actions that help grow and shape sport in our community.
Eligible entries are for performances or contributions that take place between January 1 and December 31 of the qualifying year. Exceptions include information relevant to those categories that honour lifetime achievement awards.
Who Can Nominate
Anyone can nominate an individual, team, partner, or corporation for the LSCAA. It is preferable that a non family member make the nomination. No individuals may nominate themselves for an individual award. It is the nominating person’s responsibility to accurately select the categories entered.
