The ASB, with College Sport, will again promote the ASB Young Sportsperson of the Year Dinner, which will be held on 20 November

To view YSPOTY photos please go to

The original purpose of this function as initiated in 1991 was to reward and recognise students who have performed with distinction in the regular senior secondary school sports competition organised through College Sport. Students should be competing in senior or open secondary school competition and preferably be senior school students.


College Sport recognises that secondary school students participate in sports not on the College Sport calendar, but are not in a position to recognise them at our awards. College Sport's sanctioning process encompasses factors beyond the sport arena, including coordination with the educational calendar, administrative strength and adherence to the principles of secondary school sport. We regret that we are unable to recognise some student’s achievements at our awards.


It is possible that a school may nominate more than one student in a sport, if there are a number of students attending that school who have reached a high standard of achievement. In other words, you should not attempt to anticipate the winner and thereby fail to nominate a student from your school who could well become a finalist.



  • Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year - chosen by the Awards Committee from all category winners.
  • Sport Categories - from nominations received, up to three finalists per sport per gender are invited. One winner per sport per gender announced on the night.
  • All Rounders - from nominations received, all that meet the criteria will be awarded on the night.
  • Athletes With A Disablilty
  • Service to Secondary School Sport
  • Gacu Student Coach of the Year
  • National Team Champions Roll of Honour - from nominations received, all teams which have won a Senior New Zealand Secondary School Championship, will be recognised in a roll of honour read out at the dinner. No presentation will be made. Note that this is a separate entry form in EnterNOW.
  • International Achievement Award
  • Puma Sports Educator of the Year


NOMINATIONS FOR ALL CATEGORIES CAN BE MADE ON EnterNOW AND WILL REQUIRE PRINCIPAL’S AUTHORISATION. Go to EnterNOW Online Entries to submit your nominations by Wednesday 17 September, 5pm. Instructions, along with criteria & eligibility details can be found in the handbook and/or available online from our website.


The process after receipt of nominations is that we send all nominations to a ranking official, considered an expert in their field. Their rankings come back to the office where a committee comprising College Sport staff, Directors of Sport from schools, and 2 Principals from the ASSHA Board then ratifies them.

  • Nominations received.
  • All nominations sent to ranking official (usually National or Regional Sport Organisation).
  • Ranking officials rank Top 5 in order.
  •  Meeting convened of sport committee comprising College Sport staff, ASSHA Board and selected school Sport Directors.
  • Meeting clarifies and ratifies rankings and winners.

NB The judging committee will make every effort to ensure that there are no more than 3 finalists in each sports category.
