20th Community Sport Hero Awards

Wednesday, February 16, 2022

Awards: 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Rotary Centre for the Arts (Mary Irwin Theatre)

Business Casual


We are living in extraordinary times and these past two years have looked different for sport ~ therefore, our celebrations will look a bit different as well. In accordance with Public Health Authority recommendations and orders, this year’s awards will have some modifications to our usual proceedings. Guests will be required to register in advance via Eventbrite and will be assigned seating (please distance your bubble from others by using the seating map on Eventbrite). Seating will be at 50% capacity of the Mary Irwin Theatre and there will be no catering, beverages, or pre-event reception. If you are unsure of your availability, we encourage you to get a ticket(s) in advance due to limited capacity.  We will adapt to any additional measures should things change in public health guidance.


Attendees must be fully vaccinated (and must present their vaccination records upon arrival) along with ID – registration must include the attendee’s full name and contact information. Attendees will be required to wear a mask during the event, and award recipients will be given special instructions for receiving their awards and having a commemorative picture taken.


The 2022 Community Sport Hero Awards are a free community celebration, and we will be featuring highlight videos for each of our Sport Hero Award winners, along with a brief introduction to their personal biographies and overview of what sets them apart as our Sport Hero selections for 2021.
