Who's your grassroots sporting hero? 

You can nominate anyone of any age for a Pride of  Sport Award. It could be a selfless volunteer who has given up their time to coach youngsters for years, or someone who washes kits to make sure players look their best week in week out.

Please choose what you feel to be the most suitable category from the list below. Don’t worry if you’re not sure - some nominees may fit in more than one category, so the Pride of Sport team will make sure all nominations are considered for the most appropriate award.

Winners will be chosen by the Pride of Sport judging panel, from a shortlist produced by the Pride of Sport research team who will consider every public nomination received.
