The CBR Sport Awards are Canberra’s premier sporting awards.
The Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of Canberra’s top athletes and teams, while also recognising those behind-the-scenes special contributors that make our local sporting community so great.
The Awards will recognise not only excellence at an individual and team level, but innovative and inclusive practices within our community clubs, as well as outstanding event management. The People’s Sporting Champion is decided by popular vote.
The CBR Sport Awards night promises to be a fantastic celebration of our city’s proud sporting culture, its champions and quiet achievers, and the passion Canberrans bring as players and supporters to their favourite sports.
