British Gymnastics National Awards - Nominations now Open
Is there someone who has dedicated their life to your gym club? Is saying thank you with flowers not enough to show your appreciation? Make their day by recognising their efforts by nominating them for a National Award.
Nominations are Now Open!
Behind every great gymnast there are at least a dozen volunteers helping them become heroes. Whether it is by fundraising, coaching, volunteering, looking after the welfare of the members or organising all the competition entries, or whether you have developed and achieved incredible results through applying for funding, setting up a host of events, or linking your clubs to allow more people to access gymnastics, British Gymnastics National Awards want to celebrate your achievements.
British Gymnastics have an award available for everyone, whether you’re a young volunteer who helps out once a week, or a coach who’s produced some great gymnasts we recognise those working at the recreational end of the sport right through to the Elite. There are 5 Development awards available for you to nominate that special someone who has gone the extra mile and 6 honorary awards to be presented on the night.
Nominations can be made for those who have gone the extra mile to change the lives of gymnasts and now deserve to be recognised. If your club or member has won an award at a regional level, this would be the icing on the cake and would also promote your club. The top three short listed winners will be invited to celebrate at the National Awards night with a host of special guests and gymnastics personalities! Winners will be awarded at the British Gymnastics Awards Celebration Evening, at Telford International Centre on the 9th June 2012.
