In early 2018, a Sports Hall of Fame committee was appointed to help guide the process of establishing a home that could recognize the accomplishments of local athletes. The first Sports Hall of Fame induction took place in 2018.
The Powell River Sports Hall of Fame celebrates and honors the athletic achievements of current and former Powell River residents that have made a lasting impact on the local, national and international sporting scene. Located on the upper foyer at the Powell River Recreation Complex, the Powell River Sports Hall of Fame showcases the accomplishments of individuals, teams, pioneers and builders and provides a glimpse into their legacies and the impact they have had on our community.
Current Committee Members include: Councillor Jim Palm, Chair, Lisanne English, Co-Chair, Connie Polman Tuin, Bob Bogoslowski, Tod English, Roger Pagani, Paul Liknes, Drew Ferguson, Paul Galinski. There is also City of Powell River staff support from Tara O’Donnell.
The induction period for 2021 is now closed.
The Sports Hall of Fame Committee is soliciting nominations from the public which will help determine the intake of the Sports Hall of Fame members.
Eligibility is open to individual athletes, teams, and builders (e.g. officials, coaches, executives) who live or are from the Powell River area and have made significant contributions to sport in Powell River and elsewhere.
