Do you, or someone in your school or place of education, excel at sport?

Are you motivating or training others to be good at sport?

Are you a young coach who is coaching future stars?

Are you getting people active at your school, community or gym?

If so, we want to hear from you.

The SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month competition, recognising learners aged six to 18 who excel in sport, will again be a regular feature this year.

Through this partnership, SuperSport Let’s Play and Express search for talented athletes in primary and secondary schools, able-bodied and with disabilities.

These candidates receive monthly recognition as the SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month. The winner is chosen from all the nominations received for that month, and will receive a Let’s Play hamper.

From all the entries received each month, one learner will be chosen as the SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month.

The monthly winners automatically qualify as finalists for the SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Year award. This honour will be awarded to the one athlete chosen as the overall winner.

  • An annual summary of the sporting achievements of each finalist will be taken into account before the winner is chosen.

SuperSport Let’s Play identified the need amongst the youth to get more active.

With this in mind, SuperSport and Let’s Play, in association with Unicef South Africa, launched this special initiative in 2008.

In order to encourage youngsters to be more active, we want to find and give recognition to learners at either primary or high school level who excel in sport or who are helping others to become more active.

You can nominate yourself or be nominated by a friend, teacher, lecturer or coach at your school or place of education. You can even be nominated by a family member who knows how good you are.

Look out for the year’s first SuperSport Let’s Play Sports Star of the Month in Express in February.
