Awards

The WAFDA Awards recognise those who have contributed significantly to the growth and development of WA Flying Disc Sports.  The focus is for both on-field and off-field efforts, and for those people who put in so much effort behind the scenes.

The annual awards are generally presented at the end-of-year function, or via our website throughout the month of December.  Nominations for all awards are usually called several weeks before the presentation.  Award nominations can be submitted by email indicating the category and nominee, and a description of achievements that address the relevant award criteria or via our online voting forms. All nominees will need to be verified as WAFDA members in order to be eligible for their respective categories.
