This year's top 100 finalists cover more than 30 sports across eight categories.

BMX and rugby league lead the charge with eight finalists, while it's been another strong showing from equestrian sports (7) and football (6).

But the suprise packets for 2019 have been calisthenics, softball and hockey - all three managing to secure 24 final spots between them.

Hoping to lift a trophy from their multiple finalsts are club respresentatives from bowls, AFL, gymnastics, cricket, basketball, netball, boxing, swimming, judo, tennis, surf life saving, athletics, motorcycling and lacrosse. 

At the other end of the equation ice hockey, badminton, wheelchair basketball, baseball, volleyball, golf, cycling, touch football, mountain biking and triathlon are each represented by a single finalist.

So which sports will fly the flag when the winners are announced at a presentation luncheon with sports industry leaders on April 11?

From club stalwarts and inspiring coaches to top clubs, administrators, social media innovators, Masters stars, great facilities and on-the-ball sports associations - it's the best of the grassroots from across the nation.

Voting closes Thursday March 28.
