NSWIS Awards

Each year the NSWIS Awards dinner provides a unique opportunity for all of Team NSWIS to come together to celebrate the achievements of athletes, coaches and sport programs from the NSW Institute of Sport.

Celebrating another exceptional 12 months for #TeamNSWIS, this year’s NSWIS Awards will recognise the collective efforts of our athletes, coaches, staff as well as our sport and commercial partners. We will also acknowledge the significant contributions our representatives have made to Australian national teams, through earning international podium performances and by helping to secure qualification spots in the lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics.
