2020 Derbyshire School Sport and Physical Activity Awards cancelled due to Covid-19

It is with regret that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year's Derbyshire School Sport and Physical Activity Awards have been cancelled.

The nomination process for the awards would have been due to open soon, however this is largely done through schools which have other priorities at present.

Many sports have also been unable hold district, county, regional or national competitions this year, with fixtures cancelled from March onwards, and so it would not be possible to recognise a full range of sporting achievements.

Therefore the event organisers – Active Derbyshire, the Derbyshire School Sport Association and the Derbyshire Active Schools Network – have decided to pause the event for 2020.

It is hoped that the event will return in 2021, with amended criteria which will recognise sporting achievements and work to help young people engage in more active and healthy lives between August 2019 and July 2021.
