We're back to celebrate sport's unsung heroes    

The 2020 Sportscover Clubbies Awards is open for nominations! 

Once again we're on the hunt for more uplifting stories from the grassroots of Aussie sport: inspiring coaches, hard-working volunteers, athletes whose passion for competition defies age, clubs that transform their local community.

This year it's even easier to celebrate the unsung heroes of your club or team.

Just answer a few very quick questions to enter one or more of the eight categories and ensure your nominee is in the running for a share of prizes valued at more than $10,000. 

While you're here, also check out the 2019 legends who were honoured at a glittering presentation luncheon earlier this year. Since its launch in 2015, Clubbies has attracted thousands of nominations across more than 80 sporting codes and rewarded in excess of 30 grassroots clubs and individuals across every Australian state and mainland territory. 

Is your community sports club the next to join the Clubbies winners alumni?

Schedule

Nominations close on February 14, 2020 and voting opens on February 26 for two weeks. Winners will be notified in March before a presentation luncheon in April.

Inside Sport's Clubbies is co-presented by the Confederation of Australian Sport (CAS) – dedicated to supporting Australia's 90-plus national sporting organisations – and partnered by Sportscover.
