Awards ceremony recognizes athletes, coaches, volunteers and administrators

Sport Yukon held its 45th annual Member Awards on Dec. 3, recognizing the achievements of nearly 80 athletes, coaches, volunteers and administrators from 16 different organizations.

Although typically presented at a large, in-person ceremony with friends and family present, COVID-19 means this year’s presentation was made virtually via social media channels and Sport Yukon’s website.
