The Coaching, Officiating & Volunteering (COV) Awards 2022 are now open for nominations.

A Sportscotland spokesperson said: “We're looking forward to celebrating incredible coaches, officials and volunteers who are making a difference to sport in Scotland. If you know someone who's made a positive impact on their sport, club, school or community in one of these roles, the COV Awards are a chance to recognise their invaluable contribution.

“This has been a busy year for coaches, officials, and volunteers, as restrictions have eased and sport has returned. It has been amazing to see how everyone involved has adapted and risen to this challenge, working to make sport inclusive and welcoming for all participants.
