Individuals normally recognized are those who in many cases have retired from their particular field. It therefore goes without saying that those who have contributed something back i.e. coaching... to the community will be given preference over those who have not.
Listed sports would be categorized as those sports associated with the Olympics as well as other sports which may hold open senior national or international championships.
Teams that are selected are chosen for accomplishments made during the one year, not an era.
Junior teams, College [not University], and minor league teams are not eligible for induction into the Sports Hall of Fame.
Separate to the above and in an effort to honor Athletes/Teams in the minor league/Junior/School category we have initiated awards which recognize these individuals / teams. A separate committee is in place to choose the individuals. They will be honored at our annual Hall of Fame banquet.
Any person, team or builder/administrator may be nominated to the Sports Hall of Fame.
A nomination form must be completed by a member of the community or by a sports group. It must include a history of the nominee: the person’s background, achievements, medals awarded, etc. Letters of recommendation may accompany the nomination.
Where an athlete has won an Olympic or World Championship Gold Medal any waiting period is waived and the nominee is eligible for immediate induction.
Each nomination will be screened and voted on by the selection committee. The selection committee will be made up of at least 12 members, two of whom will be inductees of the Sports Hall of Fame. The selection committee will vote on the nominations and will also vote on the maximum number of athletes, teams and builders to be inducted each year.
If the person or team is not inducted into the Hall of Fame when they are first nominated, their names will be put forward for up to two years after the person or team has been nominated. If after this period of time the person or team has not been inducted then the name goes into dormancy for at least two years. After this period of time the person or team can be re-nominated.
The selection committee's recommendations for induction are final.
