Nominations open for North Cowichan/Duncan Sports Wall of Fame

First inductions since 2019 will take place this November

The Sports Wall of Fame Nomination Committee is currently accepting applications for new nominations. The nomination deadline is April 30, 2022.

The North Cowichan/Duncan Sports Wall of Fame is dedicated to honouring the rich history of our community’s many sports, coaches, athletes, teams, administrators, and builders. The Wall recognizes those individuals and teams that have attained high achievement and/or made a significant contribution locally within the Cowichan Valley, or elsewhere in the world.

“Our region is rich with contributors to the world of sport, who deserve recognition,” said North Cowichan Mayor Al Siebring. “We ask the community to think about the athletes, teams, coaches or administrators who have excelled in their sport or contributed to our community significantly through local athletics, and we invite you to submit a nomination package on their behalf.”

The Sports Wall of Fame is located in the lobby of the Cowichan Aquatic Centre and is administered by the Sports Wall of Fame Nominating Committee. Categories include Athlete, Team, Coach, and Administrator/Builder. The new inductees will be announced and honoured at an induction ceremony this November.

The Sports Wall of Fame has made the move from bronze plaques to digital display. Visitors can use the touchscreen to view all Sports Wall of Fame recipients. The plaques are being incorporated into a Walk of Fame as part of the exterior entrance to the Aquatic Centre.
