Coach Nominated Athlete Awards

To recognize the dedication, hard work and sportsmanship of our athletes, our club provides the awards listed below at the end of each membership year.* Recipients receive $175 awards.

Because coaches are integral to athletes' training, testing, competing and observe interactions with coaches, skaters and staff, coaches are the most qualified to nominate skaters for these awards:

  • Coaches with Professional Membership with the club may nominate 1 skater per award.

  • Coaches on contract with Sun Valley Company Sept though May may nominate 1 skater per award.

  • Thus, coaches who fulfill both criteria above can nominate 2 skaters per award.

Nominations are due on June 15, 2020 at 11pm Mountain Time and are for achievements and training during July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 membership year.

*Note that awards granted and amounts distributed may vary from year to year. Typically, one award per category is provided if there is a qualified nominee.
