Haringey Aquatics are very proud to announce that our Head of Teaching, Sharon Austin, won the award for the ‘Outstanding contribution to sport and physical activity’ at the 2016 Celebrating Sports Awards. Sharon was up against stiff competition in this category and so it is particularly pleasing that her dedication, effort and contribution to sport was acknowledged by the judges. She was recognised for her major contribution in developing the programme at Northumberland Park School which provides a wide range of low cost aquatics activities for children, adults and women only sessions, her years of voluntary work for the club, her contribution to swimming through her officiating and her reinvention of herself as a committed and brilliant swimming teacher.
We were also very pleased that Rick Dear, of Head Diving Coach was shortlisted for the ‘Senior Sports Performer of the Year’ following a year when he brought home gold, silver and bronze medals in the European Masters Diving Competition held at the LAC and for all his unstinting work coaching and inspiring children to get into diving.
The annual Haringey Celebrating Sports Awards are promoted by Haringey Council and sponsored by Tottenham Hotspur, Fusion Lifestyle and Tottenham Grammar Foundation.
