SportMaker BannerRecognising outstanding coaches, officials and volunteers

Sport NI’s SportMaker Awards are back for 2023 and nominations are now closed. Please check back at a later date to see who our winners are.

The SportMaker Awards recognise the outstanding contribution of coaches, officials, volunteers and projects over the last 12 months and the vital role they play in supporting, developing, and encouraging people to benefit from the Power of Sport.

Nominations can be made by members of the public across six award categories for coaches, two award categories for officials, two award categories for volunteers and one category for SportMaker projects.

A High Performance Coach of the Year award may also be presented in 2023. If so, Sport NI will seek nominations directly from governing bodies of sport for this category.
