Sport Nova Scotia Awards

The Support4Sport Awards hosted by Sport Nova Scotia (formerly called the RICOH Sport Awards) celebrate the outstanding achievements of athletes, coaches, officials, sponsors and volunteers from around the province – all of whom have contributed to sport in Nova Scotia. These individuals represent the best of amateur sport, not only by virtue of their athletic achievement but also through their dedication and commitment to sport.

Row Nova Scotia annually nominates a slate of nominees for the overall Support4Sport Awards. Where applicable, Row NS will use the winners of the Row NS Awards Banquet to determine the Support4Sport Award winners. Our nominees are selected by the Row NS Board of Directors using our values of engage, innovate and achieve. These nominees are judged against the best athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers and organizations from across all the sports in the province.
