Sports Awards

Due to the global pandemic, the Shire of Collie Sports Award Panel have postponed the 2020 award ceremony until November 2021. However, submissions were invited for the 2019/2020 period from those clubs and members of the community that managed to complete seasons or compete during this time. The submissions will be assessed on their merits, but not announced or awarded until the next awards ceremony. The Shire of Collie Sports Award Panel reserves the right to vary the time period over which an award can be considered.

This means that in November 2021 more than one award may be presented in each category.
