(Red Deer, Alberta)

Nominations for young athletes are being sought by The City of Red Deer for the Rising Sport Stars awards program.

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. 

After a two year pause due to the pandemic, The City of Red Deer is happy to bring this award back to the community in 2022.

Nominations are completed and submitted by various sport groups and awards are presented annually at Xplore Sport Day: Saturday May 7, 2022 at Capstone Canada 150 Square. More information about the award ceremony and timing will be announced closer to the event.

Nominations are accepted via online form and must be submitted prior to the nomination deadline of Friday, April 29, 2022.
