2019 Roxby Downs Sports Awards

2019 Sports Awards


As the peak community body representing all sports in Roxby Downs, the Sport and Recreation Forum would like to formally recognise sporting achievements on behalf of the community in the following categories:

  • Senior Sportsperson
  • Young Sportsperson
  • Team of the Year
  • Sporting Organisation of the Year

The Sport and Recreation Forum believes that each year outstanding achievements are performed within our community by individuals, teams or organisations who perform at a high athletic level or who provide outstanding administrative support to allow others to enjoy and participate in their chosen sport and reach their full sporting potential.

Those nominated do not necessarily need to be outstanding athletes; team players or sporting administrators are equally worthy.

Nominations close 5pm Friday 29 November 2019. Complete an online nomination below or download and submit this nomination form - 2019 Roxby Downs Sport Awards Nomination Form(864 kb) 

Completed hard copy forms can be submitted via email at: or lodged in the entry boxes located at the Roxbylink Kiosk and Roxby Council Administration Counter.

Award winners will be announced at the 2020 Australia Day celebrations at the Roxbylink pool.

The form is no longer active.
