North Cowichan/Duncan Sports Wall of Fame nominations are now being accepted for the next month until April 26.
The Sports Wall of Fame, located inside the Cowichan Aquatic Centre in Duncan, honours the rich history of the many sports, coaches, athletes, teams, administrators and builders from the community. The Wall recognizes individuals and teams attaining a high achievement or making a significant contribution in sports – be it within the Cowichan Valley, B.C., Canada or internationally.
Previous inductees are acknowledged with wall plaques in the lobby of the Aquatic Centre.
“Every two years we put a call out for nominations,” noted Al Siebring, Mayor of North Cowichan. “We ask the community to think about the teams, athletes, coaches or administrators who have excelled in their sport or contributed to our community significantly through local athletics, and we invite you to submit a nomination package on their behalf.”
The Sports Wall of Fame is administered by a committee that makes recommendations to council. Categories include: athlete, team, coach and administrator/builder.
The new inductees eventually selected for 2019 will be honoured during a ceremony at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club on Nov. 16.
