Sports Hall of Fame
The Initiative to immortalize the legacies from Nanaimo’s sports community was launched in 2008 and recognizes achievement in five categories – Athlete, Builder, Media, Pioneer, and Team.
Located in the lobby of the museum, the Sports Hall of Fame is free to view, and showcases Nanaimo’s talented and dedicated sporting community. Nominations to the SHOF are accepted year-round, and the Induction Ceremonies happen every second year. The next Sports Hall of Fame Induction will be June, 2017.
We are actively looking for nominations from the community. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-753-1821 with inquiries and to avoid multiple nominations for the same nominee.
