Celebrating local heroes, inspiring our community.
In 2019, the North Shore Sports Hall of Fame is relaunching with a brand new awards program to celebrate the legacy of the North Shore’s greatest athletes, coaches, sport builders and teams.
Building on the success of the annual North Shore Sport Awards (now in its 19th year) which recognizes local sport accomplishments in the past year, the North Shore Sports Hall of Fame will honour those who have created a legacy through their lifetime of sport achievement.
The North Shore Sports Hall of Fame inductees for 2019 will be announced at the North Shore Sport Awards on March 14.
If you have any questions or comments for the North Shore Sports Hall of Fame Committee, please email Darcie Montgomery.
The North Shore Sports Hall of Fame inductees for 2019 will be announced at the North Shore Sport Awards event on Thursday, March 14 at 7:00pm at the West Vancouver Community Centre located at 2121 Marine Drive in West Vancouver.
