Nominations are open for the 2018 LiveArgyll annual Sports Awards in partnership with sportscotland that recognise and celebrate individual sporting achievement, teams, coaches and volunteers making sport happen across Argyll and Bute.

Readers are invited to nominate the people that go the extra mile to help others, young or old in your community.

While we may often see our elite heroes on TV and podiums, we hear much less about the people behind the scenes keeping grassroots sport alive week in, week out.

They might run a netball team, help kids fall in love with mountain-biking or support children with additional support needs to be more active.

It could be a selfless volunteer who has given up their time to coach youngsters for years, or someone who washes kits to make sure players look their best each week. This is our opportunity to celebrate what they do and give them the recognition they deserve.

The nomination categories are:
Adult Youth Coach
Youth Coach
Primary Young Leader
Community Coach
Club of the year
Service to sport
Sporting achievement of the year

Nominations close on August 17. For full details on all categories and to submit your nomination visit

Nominations can also be posted to: LiveArgyll Sandbank Office, Highland Avenue, Sandbank, Dunoon, PA23 8QZ.
