Click here to enter your nomination/s for the 2015 Community Sport and Recreation Awards.The nomination process is very simple – interested clubs just need to visit the Sport and Recreation Alliance website, where you will find details and criteria for each of the award categories, an online application form that you will need to complete, as well as full terms and conditions.

The application form is limited to 500 words, however feel free to include a link to any supporting evidence you may have, such as a video, website or other link. Make sure you include as much information as possible to showcase the great work you do!

Clubs can make multiple applications in different categories – but only one nomination per club per category is allowed. Shortlisted applications will be verified with governing bodies.

As the National Governing Body for swimming, the ASA are keen for as many of our clubs as possible to nominate themselves, to enable you to be recognised for the incredible contribution that you have made to your local communities and the sport of swimming. We would particularly encourage any club that has achieved swim21 accreditation to apply.

Application forms should be received no later than 5pm on Friday 8 May.
