Nominate your sports star online
NOMINATIONS for this year's highly successful Yaralla sports star competition close on September 13.
Yaralla Sports Club General Manager Will Schroeder urged anyone who knows of someone that excels in their chosen sport to nominate them online at www.yaralla.com.
Schroeder said that the sports star competition has been exceptional at providing deserved exposure for local success stories.
“It's the only sporting competition in town that recognises all codes, many other regional areas have similar competitions but this is the first for Gladstone and Yaralla is glad to be a part of that,” he said.
“It provides recognition for juniors, seniors and more so club-persons, people that contribute years and years, sometimes decades of their lives to a club.
“They are the unsung heroes, it gives them some recognition where there's no other forum or media for that.
“It elevates their individual profile, the code and sport in general.”
Yaralla sports club gives away $60,000 to $80,000 a year to local sporting talents, who are required to share that money with their relevant sporting body.
The annual Yaralla sports star awards night, in which the sports star of the year will be crowned, will be held on November 12 at the Entertainment Centre.
