Nominate someone you know for the Aquaforce Volunteer Awards 2010

The ASA is pleased to welcome nominations for the Aquaforce Volunteer Awards 2010.

The ASA is pleased to welcome nominations for the Aquaforce Volunteer Awards 2010.

The Awards recognise the invaluable contribution that volunteers make to aquatic sport at all levels.

If you know someone who gives up their time regularly to make a vital contribution then why not nominate them for an Aquaforce Volunteer Award?

Awards are given in five categories:

  • Outstanding contribution at club level     
  • Outstanding contribution at county/regional level 
  • Long Service Award (25 years or more)                 
  • Young Volunteer - under 18 years
  • Outstanding contribution by an 18 to 25 year old

The winner of last year’s Outstanding contribution by an 18 to 25 year old, Stewart Nicklin, was nominated by Bernard Simkins, Chairman of Stourbridge Swimming Club. Bernard said: “Stewart has brought dynamism and enthusiasm to his role as head coach and is constantly looking for new ideas and initiatives to bring to training at the club.

“We are proud of what Stewart has achieved in winning the National Aquaforce Award for outstanding contribution by an 18-25 year old. I think that award says it all.”

If you know someone like Stewart who deserves recognition then nominate them for an Aquaforce Volunteer Award.
