We honour, celebrate and recognise outstanding people within the Victorian disability sport and recreation community. 

2022 VDSR Awards Highlight Reel

Our awards

The annual Victorian Disability Sport and Recreation Awards recognise the accomplishments of people with disability; those who support them and the inclusive sport and recreation sector across the state. 

It is an opportunity to celebrate the athletes, volunteers, officials, administrators, clubs, venues, and programs that enable and empower people with disability to get active and achieve their goals. 

The awards provide an opportunity to discover notable champions and rising stars and celebrate what is great about accessible and inclusive sport.

In 2023

This year’s awards celebrate activities over a 12-month period from July 2022 to July 2023. 

Nominators and nominees will be able to easily submit their nominations while community participation is being explored for greater involvement in the judging process. 

The Victorian Disability Sport and Recreation Awards are an initiative of Disability Sport & Recreation (DSR), supported by My Sport Live, The Carbine Club,  and the Victorian Government
