BSUK seeks nominations for third annual Coaching Awards

Thu 16 Nov 2017

BSUK is seeking nominations from the British baseball and softball communities for their annual British baseball and softball coaching awards.

The third annual Coaching Awards will once again be presented following the Coach Summit in 2018, providing an opportunity to recognise the hard work and expertise of coaches and volunteers throughout our sports. 

The 2018 Coach Summit will take place on Saturday 27 January at the Kents Hill Park Conference Centre in Milton Keynes -- for more information or to book tickets, please go to the Coach Summit microsite.

This year, the Awards have been expanded and developed in consultation with the British Softball Federation to recognise the breadth of the workforce that makes a positive impact in our sports.  We all know that without coaches and volunteers, our sports would not be in such good health.  This is your opportunity to recognise people’s contributions by nominating them for the awards.

The categories are:

Young Coach of the Year:  This award is for the coach aged 22 or younger deemed to have made the biggest contribution to coaching, managing and supporting baseball and/or softball in Britain in 2018.

Baseball Youth Coach of the Year:  This award is for an outstanding contribution to coaching young people in baseball in Britain.

Softball Youth Coach of the Year:  This award is for an outstanding contribution to coaching young people in softball in Britain.

Baseball Adult Coach of the Year:  This award is for an outstanding contribution to adult baseball coaching in Britain.

Softball Adult Coach of the Year:  This award is for an outstanding contribution to adult softball coaching in Britain.

Participation Coach of the Year:  This award is for a coach who has engaged new participants, not in a traditional club setting, but within BSUK national programmes and/or participation projects.

Volunteer of the Year:  This award is for a volunteer in a non-coaching role who has given up a substantial amount of time to support their local club, team or league and who has made a significant impact on the development of our sports.

Services to Coaching:  This award is made to the individual who best personifies what it means to be a baseball or softball coach: someone who understands their sport and can use the lessons learned on the pitch to motivate and engage others.  He or she has probably played a great number of roles, and without them coaching in your club, your league, your county or perhaps even your country wouldn’t be the same.

This is a great opportunity to recognise coaches and volunteers in your area, so please make sure your nominations are with us in good time.

To nominate a deserving member of our community, please click here.  

The deadline for nominations for these awards is midnight on 30 November 2017.
