Criteria For Nominations

Our Kincardine Sports Wall of Fame is at the Davidson Centre, recognizing teams, athletes and builders from ALL sports within the Municipality of Kincardine. Nominations can be dropped off at the Davidson Centre office Monday to Friday 8:30am-4:30pm or it can be left in our drop box. All submissions prior to April 30th will be considered for that year's induction ceremony. The ceremony will be held each year with details available as they are finalized each year.

All complete submissions will be reviewed with approximately five being inducted each year. The nominations will be kept on file for five years and all will be considered for each year. If after five years the nomination has not been selected, it will no longer be considered unless it is re-submitted.

All nominations must be complete including a photo to be considered.

Teams

The team must have won a recognizable Provincial, National or International Championship (i.e.: OMHA, OHA, OBA, OFSSA) or have made a significant and unique contribution to the history or heritage of sport in the Municipality of Kincardine. The team must be from the Municipality of Kincardine. Only one picture of a team will be posted on the wall, therefore, it is recommended that teams are nominated once they have completed their minor sports career. That way all their success will be captured in their application and identified on the Wall of Fame. If a “team” has been successfully recognized for an achievement, an individual team member may not be nominated for that same achievement unless additional, significant achievements have occurred. Teams will be considered 10 years after their accomplishment.

Athletes

An athlete is an individual from the Municipality of Kincardine who has excelled in one or more sports with distinction. He/she must have competed at Provincial, National, Division 1 or International Levels. Amateur and professional athletes are included in this category. Individuals who have played for teams outside our area and have won Provincial or National Championships will be considered under this category. There will be a two-year period of inactivity in the area for which they have been nominated before being considered, this is to ensure that they have retired and that all their successes will be captured on the plaque. Certain extenuating circumstances may alter consideration (i.e.: terminal illness, etc.)

Builders

Individuals or organizations from the Municipality of Kincardine or that support the Municipality of Kincardine teams or sport organizations will be considered under this category. Builders may be nominated if they are currently still active as long as they have a minimum of 25 years of service. If they are no longer active they must have served a minimum of 25 years and have been inactive for at least 5 years. Certain extenuating circumstances may alter considerations (i.e.: terminal illness etc.)
