The City of Kelowna and PacificSport Okanagan are pleased to recognize and honour athletes and volunteers / sport leaders and their outstanding contributions to sport in our community. This year will feature a new focus for the 2022 Community Sport Hero Awards. Sport looked different in 2021 – athletes and sports leaders/ volunteers had to adapt and do things differently in these challenging times.

Nominations are now closed and the Community Sport Heroes have been selected and notified. Despite the challenges of 2021 each Hero has risen above and demonstrated our three pillars of: innovation, leadership, and excellence within their sport. 

They will be honoured on February 16, 2022 at the Rotary Centre of the Arts, and will be presented with a commemorative plaque and gift to mark this achievement.
