SW Awards 2017

The South West Volleyball Association appreciates the importance of volunteers in our sport and the huge contribution they make.  The Annual Awards go a little way to recognise their contribution and we hope that clubs and members will nominate those who they believe have put in their time and energy to assure the future development of volleyball.

All nominees for volunteer awards must be part of an affiliated club or association.   Nominees for the coach or referee awards must be currently registered Volleyball England Coaches or Referees (or have recently retired from long standing registration / membership). Nominators must follow guidelines given below as well as providing any additional relevant information that may apply.

The deadline for all nominations is 18th May 2017. Download the nomination form and forward to Ron Richards – rricha7122@aol.com .  Nomination forms should be returned to Ron Richards at the above email address or by post: 3 Woodside Grove, Henbury, Bristol, BS10 7RF. You can also make nominations online at: https://www.swva.org.uk/annual-awards-form
