Inverclyde Sports Personality Awards

The 2018 Inverclyde Sports Personality Awards are underway!

The search has started for the Inverclyde sports people who have made the headlines in 2018, culminating in the glittering awards dinner which this year will take place in the Greenock Town Hall on Friday 8th March 2019. The 2018 awards promise to be another very enjoyable occasion for all involved.

The nine categories of award for 2018 remain the Inverclyde Senior Sports Personality of the Year, Junior Sports Personality of the Year, Disabled Sports Personality of the Year, Coach of the Year, Club of the Year, Team of the Year, School Team of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year (up to age 25) and Adult Volunteer of the Year.

The 2018 awards are organised by West College Scotland, Inverclyde Council through Active Schools, Inverclyde Leisure, New Horizons Marketing, and sportscotland with help from 8digital. Anyone, whether a club, official or individual can nominate in any and all of the nine categories  online on the awards website www.inverclydesportspersonality.com  Nomination forms will also be available in all Inverclyde Leisure facilities.
