The Alberta Sport Recognition Awards program was established in 1987 to acknowledge the outstanding achievements and commitment of coaches, officials and volunteers in the province.

“From remarkable athletes to devoted coaches and officials, Alberta’s government wants to recognize outstanding individuals and teams that represent the best in sport across our province. They help make the province a better place to play, visit and live thanks to their dedication to sport.”

Joseph Schow, Minister of Tourism and Sport
