Distinction in Sports
great men and women whose sporting deeds inspired and
helped shape our community and its sporting spirit, the Wetaskiwin and County Sports Hall of Fame recognizes
and celebrates their performances
and most memorable moments that made them champions in
their sport and leaders in life. Their
sport and their passion enthuse us,
form an integral chapter in our history, unite us, and have been instrumental
in developing the character of our community.
to Reach Beyond Our Expectations
The Hall of Fame honours the remarkable
men and women of sport who contributed to the record of sporting
achievements in the County and City of Wetaskiwin and who have displayed
exceptional determination, commitment, and loyalty.
As fans, families,
coaches, or mentors nothing excites us as much as the
thrill of a sporting contest and the outstanding
performances by the individuals who participate and
challenge themselves to reach beyond our expectations.
Sport is an
integral part of our culture,
enthralling and entertaining. The
intrinsic value of sport lies in the fact that we are able to recognize
that at any given moment in our lives, we can share one cause,
one thought, one love. Sport unites us in entertainment, in
achieving, in excelling, in changing attitudes, and developing the
character of our community; it transcends the barriers of politics,
language, or different backgrounds in the same way art, music and
literature do. Sport gives us heroes and villains, underdogs and favourites, as well as dreams both realized and broken. The participants
in sport inspire us and capture our hearts. Their contributions to the
fabric of our society must be acknowledged.
