We are seeking nominations for the 2021-22 Biathlon Alberta Awards

By News

The 2021-22 season is one to remember. Lots of fantastic work was done by countless volunteers, coaches, officials and athletes to make the past season happen! The ongoing COVID-19 restrictions made it not always easy on all of us to have events but our community managed to host almost all races (Edmonton had to be cancelled due to lack of snow).

We want to celebrate our athletes, volunteers, coaches and officials and are seeking nominations for the 2021-22 Biathlon Alberta Awards.

Biathlon Alberta is asking their members to nominate other Biathlon Alberta members for the following awards:

  • Ruedi Setz Memorial Award

The award will honour a biathlete who has performed well in the sport, displayed exemplary standards of sportsmanship, and made a significant contribution in assisting the development of the sport. The recipient will not necessarily have exhibited the highest performance level during the competition year.

  • Shell Volunteer of the Year Award

The Shell Volunteer of the Year Award is awarded annually to a Biathlon Alberta member who has made significant contributions to the sport of biathlon and truly exemplifies the volunteer spirit.

  • Alberta Biathlon Club Official of the Year Award

The ABC Official of the Year Award is presented annually to a Biathlon Alberta member who has significantly contributed to the officiating of Biathlon Alberta competitions. This individual respects the rules and regulations of Biathlon while demonstrating a philosophy of fair play.

  • Richard Boruta Memorial- Coach of the Year Award

The Richard Boruta Memorial  – Coach of the Year Award is presented annually to the Biathlon Alberta Coach who demonstrates respect for officials, opponents, and parents while espousing a philosophy of fair play. This coach demonstrates concern for the all-around development of the athlete and instils guidelines reflecting responsible conduct beyond the playing field. Furthermore, this coach presents by example a positive image of coaching, applies relevant training theory and coaching techniques, and demonstrates the ability to improve the athletic performance of a team or individual.

Please send all nominations to Elmar Heger (elmar@biathlon.ca) before Friday, August 31, 2022, at 12 pm.
