This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Victorian Disability Sport and Recreation Awards (VDSR Awards) – a celebration of the achievements of sportspeople with disability, the coaches, organisations, officials and volunteers who support them and the inclusive sport and recreation sector across Victoria.
The VDSR Awards are an opportunity to discover unsung heroes and rising stars and celebrate what’s truly great about accessible and inclusive sport.
This night of nights for the disability sporting sector will be held on Wednesday 22 May 2019.
Entrants in the Awards are nominated by state sporting associations, regional sport assemblies, local government, teammates, club members, coaches or their local community in recognition of their outstanding contribution to inclusive sport and recreation.
The outstanding nominations received always makes selecting the finalists a difficult decision, with the tenth anniversary Awards being no different. Disability Sport & Recreation invited 12 highly qualified judges from the sector and charged them with picking the finalists and winners across the 11 award categories.
“Whether you are an athlete, volunteer, official, coach, club, venue or program at the grass roots or Paralympian level, our awards showcase the outstanding contribution that both individuals and our community make, to empower Victorians with disability to get active and achieve their goals,’ said Disability Sport & Recreation CEO, Richard Amon.
