SPAR SCOTLAND SPONSOR DUNDEE SPORTING SCHOOL OF THE YEAR AWARD

Date Published:

SPAR Scotland recently attended the 2012 Dundee Sports Awards as sponsor of the Sporting School of the Year award.

The 2012 Dundee Sports Awards, sponsored by 'Protecting People in Dundee', aim to recognise and reward the achievements and commitment of local athletes, coaches, teams, clubs, schools and volunteers.

There were 12 award categories at this year's event. An independent panel of judges had the challenging job to decide the top 3 nominees in each category as the quality of nominations were exceptionally high including athletes aiming to reach the 2014 Commonwealth Games and coaches and volunteers with decades of service to sport in Dundee.

The top 3 nominees were invited to attend the Awards evening along with nominators, sponsors, representatives from Leisure & Culture Dundee and local clubs and associations. In addition, individuals, clubs and businesses had the opportunity to purchase tickets to attend the event.

Training Officer Michael Gormley attended the event on behalf of SPAR Scotland, and presented the awards for Sporting School of the Year to Clepington Primary School and Grove Academy.
