2017 Hampton Roads Sports Awards


Join the Hampton Roads Sports Commission in honoring our local sports industry. Awards will be given out to sport organizations, facilities, writers/reporters, collegiate and high school teams, and affiliates at the Hampton Roads Sports Award Dinner on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at the Norfolk Sheraton Waterside from 7pm-9pm! A lot of award ceremonies honor the individual athlete, but at the Hampton Roads Sports Awards Dinner, we are recognizing the people who are behind the scenes, the ones that help create the perfect sporting event, experience and atmosphere for our local athletes and visiting guests.

Coach Bobby Wilder, Head Coach of the Old Dominion University Football Team, will be our keynote speaker and Jack Ankerson will be our emcee for the night. There will be a plated dinner, cash bar and silent auction.  Be sure to help us celebrate our local sports industry in Hampton Roads!
