Active Chesterfield - Sports Awards 2017

Chesterfield Celebrates Sporting Success

On Thursday 28th September, over 200 local athletes, mentors and school pupils came to the Winding Wheel for the much anticipated 2017 Active Chesterfield Sports Awards. The Chesterfield School Sport Partnership combined community sports awards with those for schools and school teams that have excelled over the past year.

Mark Tournier, Partnership Development Manager at the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, said: “The Active Chesterfield Awards provided an exciting platform to recognise and celebrate local sporting success and honour the dedication of sports leaders and volunteers. The Awards to recognise the work that schools play in developing opportunities to shine through Sport and Leadership and to celebrate the success of individuals and teams across Chesterfield. Everyone involved in school and community sport in Chesterfield deserves praise and thanks. The Winding Wheel provided the ideal setting to give the worthy winners and highly commended nominees to receive their awards.”

22 awards were presented to athletes, coaches and volunteers from across the community. In the school sport awards, the major winners included Brockwell Junior School, Springwell Community College and St Marys Catholic High School who each picked up a team achievement award. The IAAF World Youth Championship athlete Alicia Barrett was crowned Sportsperson of the Year respectively dominating the community awards.

Alicia Barrett was unable to attend the event, however Jan Brammer was there to collect the Sportsperson of the Year award on her behalf.

Brockwell Junior School were delighted to have received not one but four awards at the event. Jo Lenthall, PE Coordinator, said: “A fantastic event that truly recognises and celebrates all that is great in sport in Chesterfield. It was brilliant to hear so many inspirational stories of young people working hard to be the best they can be and achieve their personal goals. I am so very proud of the Young Leaders of Brockwell Junior and delighted that their hard work in Media and providing us all with an active environment has been recognised and rewarded. Many thanks to the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership for providing us with this platform to showcase our achievements.”

There was also an opportunity to recognise the achievements of school staff with Rachel Bates of Old Hall Junior School receiving the Primary School Staff of the Year, along with Katherine Hollingworth of Outwood Academy Newbold who received the Secondary School Staff of the Year Award. Katherine stated that, “Sport builds confidence, friendships and gives a sense of achievement. I just want young people to have the opportunity to experience this.”

Volunteers and coaches were rewarded too, with Dave Cartawick of Unit 1 Fitness and Martial Arts being awarded both Coach of the Year as well as Club of the Year.

The evening was a great success and something which the Chesterfield School Sport Partnership looks to build upon for the years ahead. As a town, Chesterfield has some exceptionally talented sportsmen and women of all ages, as well as hard working volunteers and coaches. The Chesterfield School Sport Partnership, through initiatives such as Active Chesterfield will continue to promote their success.
