Community Athlete Recognition Award

The Maple Ridge Sport Network is proud to present the Community Athlete Recognition Awards (CARA) program which recognizes athletes and teams in the community who compete at grass roots, recreational and competitive levels.  Athletes and teams who have demonstrated their leadership skills, strong work ethic, dedication and those who are engaged in their community or have overcome adversity are eligible for this recognition program. The Sport Network is excited to celebrate the great talent we have in Maple Ridge. Nominations for athletes and teams are open year round.
