2023/24 Awards

At the end of each season, the Club holds an award presentation ceremony. Every athlete receives a medallion and a certificate listing their achievements for the season.

Special awards are then given to outstanding Stormers athletes across four categories for each age group.

  • Most improved The athlete who has come along significantly from their first session of the season. Not necessarily the fastest, farthest etc, but who has improved the most.
  • Age Managers Award (This is the athlete who has regularly attended, listened to instructions, exhibited the behaviour and values encouraged by the Club and has led by example, so not the fastest etc)
  • Merit Award (This award is to recognise the highest performing, all-round Athlete in each group. It is a combination of fastest and farthest, not just someone who is strong in one event, but who is strong across all the events)
  • Sportsmanship Award (Awarded to the athlete who regularly encourages and supports their team mates, and provides a noticeable weekly contribution to the ethos of the group)
