Nominations Open for Sports Wall of Fame

(Duncan and North Cowichan, BC) – The Sports Wall of Fame Nomination Committee is currently accepting applications for new nominations. The nomination deadline is April 26, 2019.

The North Cowichan/Duncan Sports Wall of Fame is dedicated to honouring the rich history of the many sports, coaches, athletes, teams, administrators and builders from our community. The Wall recognizes those individuals and teams which have attained high achievement and/or made a significant contribution within the Cowichan Valley, British Columbia, Canada and/or the World.

“Every two years we put a call out for nominations,” says Al Siebring, Mayor of North Cowichan. “We ask the community to think about the teams, athletes, coaches or administrators who have excelled in their sport or contributed to our community significantly through local athletics, and we invite you to submit a nomination package on their behalf.”

The Sports Wall of Fame is administered by the Sports Wall of Fame Nominating Committee and makes its recommendations to Council. Categories include: Athlete, Team, Coach, and Administrator/Builder. The new inductees will be announced and honoured at an induction ceremony taking place in the Fall of 2019.

The Sports Wall of Fame is located in the lobby of the Cowichan Aquatic Centre and individuals and teams are recognized with a plaque on the Wall of Fame.
