Time to consider State Award winners for 2023


With National Volunteer Week currently running, now is the perfect time to consider any persons that could be considered for the end of year Football NSW’s State Awards for their services to the game.

Held at the end of October, the Football NSW State Awards recognizes excellence and commitment to the game of football across our associations and branches.

It is a celebration of the volunteers and administrators that make our game great.

Awards include State Awards where each association and branch can recognize individuals who have provided consistent and valuable service at any level – Club, Association, Branch or State.

These contributions may include services such as: committee member, coach, manager, match official, canteen manager or grounds person, and the Future Leaders Award, which recognizes an individual, aged between 16 and 25, who has demonstrated exceptional leadership and commitment to football at any level of the game (club, association, branch, or state).

The evening’s final and most prestigious award is the George Churchward Medal – An honourable medal that is presented annually to an individual who has exemplified an outstanding commitment to the sport.

If you know anyone who you think deserves recognition, please talk to your local association or branch on how to nominate them.
