Yukon Hall of Fame

 

Welcome to our home of the greats.

 

A place for celebration, respect, admiration and nostalgia. For sports moments made famous and Yukoners famous for having made them.

 

We exist to preserve and celebrate the history of Yukon sport and inspire all Yukoners to achieve their potential in both sport and life. Built around the inspirational actions of our first inductee Father Jean-Marie Mouchet. The Yukon Sports Hall of Fame is determined to carry to Yukoners everywhere the symbol of excellence as represented by its members across all sports.

 

Sport is a defining and dominant part of Yukon’s culture. In honouring the achievements of its inductees, the Yukon Sports Hall of Fame preserves, presents and shares this invaluable sporting heritage as inspiration to all Yukoners.

MAJOR AWARDS Nomination Forms

Nominations for 2022 are now being accepted. The tentative closing date for nominations is Jan. 31, 2023. 

Sport Yukon Major Awards

 

Exceptional. Distinguished. Unique. Builder. Achiever.

 

Each year our sports community recognizes and celebrates athletes, teams, coaches, and administrators who are at the top of their game. They are found on podiums or blazing the trail for our Yukon sport community. They honour our communities through their commitment and pursuit of excellence.

 

 It’s only right we honour them too.

Nomination Criteria

The nomination period for our Major Awards Program opens every year in January and closes at the end of December. After adjudicating all nominations, Sport Yukon awards are usually presented in late spring. 

Being honoured with a Sport Yukon Major Award is limited exclusively to the top echelon of athletes and those who play a supportive role. Selection by their peers is the pinnacle of achievement for Yukon sportspeople. They have all achieved excellence at the highest level within their sport, and all are recognized for raising the bar as sport builders.

 

Sport governing bodies, community sport and recreation associations and other clubs, groups, organizations or individuals that are active for Sport Yukon are welcome to nominate a person or a team at the top of their game. All nominations must be supported by a sport governing body.

 

Would you like to nominate an outstanding athlete, coach, administrator or team?  Let us know

Open to athletes and volunteers who call the Yukon home and are members in their associated sport governing body.

 

Athletes who are products of our territorial sport development system but live temporarily in other provinces or territories for training or education are also eligible for nomination. If a nominee is from another region, they are also eligible to be nominated as long as their primary residence is declared as being in the Yukon.

 

This category is reserved for athletes who have competed for Canada in major international events sanctioned by their National Sport Governing Body. Competitions to be considered include the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Pan-American Games or the World Junior/Senior Championships.

 

This category does not apply to athletes who’ve competed in the Arctic Winter Games or the North American Indigenous Games.

 

Once an athlete has competed for Canada in this category, they are ineligible for an award in the Territorial or National category unless competing in an entirely different sport.

A defining moment in team building, this category is dedicated to outstanding achievement in a team sport. Athletes must compete as a team and cannot compete in individual categories in the same sport.

Government of Yukon Sport Awards

Our territorial government also celebrates our all-stars. Each year it presents awards to outstanding Yukon athletes who achieve a level of excellence.
