PERFORMANCE TIMEFRAME CLOSING

The 12-month qualification period closes next Friday, 30 November, as the 2018 RAC WA Sports Star selection panels get set to assess the performances of over 200 nominees, to select the finalists and winners across the eight categories.

For more than six decades, the night that celebrates WA sport - and recognises the contribution of athletes, coaches, teams, volunteers and administrators - is one not to be missed and was further enhanced last year by the move to the wonderful River View Rooms at Optus Stadium.
