Following the closing date of nominations (5 March 2021) all nominations will be sent to the appropriate State Sporting Association (SSA) to verify the eligibility of the application. This process is to confirm that each nomination meets the eligibility criteria attached to each award. For example, that the Coach of the Year nominee holds a current coaching accreditation recognised by their respective SSA.
Should a response not be received by an SSA, the nomination will be marked as ‘unverified’ for the deliberation of the relevant voting panel.
Following the confirmation of eligibility, all nominations for the Victorian Sport Awards will be reviewed by a panel of expert judges from the Victorian sport community. The list of judges for 2020 can be found here.
