North Cowichan/Duncan Wall of Fame looking for the class of 2015

After there were no new inductees in 2014, the North Cowichan/Duncan Sports Wall of Fame is once again seeking nominations for this year’s class.

Members of the public have until May 29 to submit the names of individuals or teams who have made contributions to sports in the community as athletes, coaches, administrators, builders or teams. "Each year I look forward to unveiling the new names we add to this wall," North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure said. "Sports play an incredibly important role in our community. It brings us together, teaches us important values, and contributes to health and wellness. Regardless of the competition, we all win."

Athletes should have competed in minor, high school or other amateur sports in the community and earned honours at the provincial, national or international level, or excelled in the collegiate, professional or international levels.

Teams should be minor, high school or other amateur groups that have represented the community in provincial, national or international competitions.

Coaches, administrators and builders should have worked with individuals or teams in amateur sports that have competed at the provincial, national or international levels, or made significant contributions to local athletics through sports organizations.

In the first six years of the Wall of Fame’s existence, 35 inductions were made, including 29 individuals, four teams and two families.

Nomination forms are available online at www.northcowichan.ca/WallofFame, or at the North Cowichan Municipal Hall, Fuller Lake Arena or the Cowichan Aquatic Centre. Nominations will go before the Sports Wall of Fame nominating committee and will be announced in October.
