Federal Member for Chifley Ed Husic has called for nominations for the 2013 Chifley Sports Awards.
The Chifley Sports Awards recognise the outstanding sporting performances, achievements and contributions by members of our local community in the following fields:
• Individual or team achievement, such as national or state selection, regional, state or national competition success, or high level single performance (for example an Australian or state record).
• Community sport contribution by individuals, including coaches, referees, umpires and administrators with at least five years’ service.
• Contribution to sport by schools, community groups (such as Lions or Rotary) or media organisations to a particular sporting event, facility or for continuous support over a minimum of two years.
Mr Husic said our community has a rich sporting culture and this is an opportunity to celebrate and recognise sporting participation.
“This past year has been a sporting highlight for Western Sydney with the outstanding success of the Wanderers winning the Premiers Plate in their inaugural A-League year.
“I have no doubt that there are future sporting stars living in our community who, with the necessary recognition and support, will make it to the world stage.”
