Nomination for AU Sport Service Award

The Service Award recognises people who have given an outstanding and highly commendable contribution to Adelaide University Sport, or to Sport at the University of Adelaide, of at least 10 years’ duration for AU Sport-based service and 15 years for club-based service. The awards may be given posthumously.

The recognition is for sport service at University of Adelaide level only and, accordingly, should be seen as separate and distinctive from affiliated club award-systems. It is regarded as a higher award than a Club Letter in the case of club-based service.

Honorary Life Membership of Adelaide University Sport, however, shall continue to be conferred upon any person who, in the opinion of the Council following consideration of a recommendation from the AU Sport Board, has rendered long and single service to AU Sport. It is regarded as a higher award than a Service Award.


The following categories should assist an affiliated club and/or the AU Sport Board when considering a nominee for a Service Award:

Players/coaches/officials/volunteers:

Exceptional service record as either a player, coach, match official or volunteer at affiliated club level or at national/regional games representing the University of Adelaide.

c)     South Australian representative on AUS National Board
d)     AU Sport Committee member, e.g. Blues, West Beach Hockey Centre, Users Group Committee etc.

Special:
