Sport Recognition and Celebration
Rising Sport Stars
Many young athletes in our community are just beginning a lifelong journey of being active and achieving success in sport. Through the Rising Sport Stars program, athletes aged 11 years or younger who participate in a Red Deer sport organization are recognized for their commitment, passion, effort or for overcoming adversity to successfully participate and develop skills, regardless of result.
If your sport has “Rising Sport Stars” participating, please let us know! Awards are presented annually at Xplore Sport Day.
