The Trust Aoraki South Canterbury Sports Awards 2020 have been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Sport Canterbury’s South Canterbury regional manager Shaun Campbell said nominations would still be accepted with a closing date of Friday, April 24.
“Nominees will be judged and all sports and nominees will be advised on our next steps to ensure our recipients are honoured appropriately.
“As a community, we rely on this annual celebration of sporting dedication to recognise South Canterbury athletes, coaches, administrators and officials, from the grassroots to elite levels of performance.
“This is an unprecedented time for our communities, and we are monitoring developments and managing risk by modifying plans to Sport Canterbury programmes and events,” he said.
