After an amazing nine days in Sweden at the Youth World Cup, we returned to a new academic year and began planning for our domestic season of national and county cup competitions.
Little did we know that we would have one final reason to celebrate together as a group. Through the strength of external nominations we were shortlisted for the ‘Sporting Achievement of the Year’ at the newly formed Broadland Community at Heart Awards 2015.
Our nomination was based upon the determination and team work the girls demonstrated over the course of the year leading up to, as well as, the tour itself. The Team hosted several events for lower school students and spent countless hours bag packing at local supermarkets. The nomination also focused heavily on the closeness they now share as a team and the development they have made as individuals along the way.
The formal ceremony, hosted by former Heart FM DJ Rob Chandler, took place at ‘The Space’ in Sprowston and was attended by shortlisted teams and individuals from across the ten categories, as well as guests and local celebrities presenting each award. After an impressive dinner and performances from a local choir group the awards section began.
The Team finished as runners up in their category to a deserving individual but had their moment on stage, came away with a framed certificate each and another great memory. As with the year long involvement of the tour, it was not about the winning but the process the Team went through to get there, together.
Congratulations on your award and thank you for all of your hard work.
