Members’ Award

The Members’ Award is open to any member of Silver City Blues, with the winner being awarded the Richard Jones Trophy.  Richard was a long standing member of the club and the trophy was donated to SCB by the Jones family in 2014. Members of SCB come in all shapes and sizes as do their achievements, what a former age group superstar sees as an achievement is completely different to somebody who signs up to the club with limited swimming experience.   Achievements are all relevant and it is important that we recognise members across all abilities.  Not only achievements can be recognised but also contributions to the club from the membership throughout the year, many members contribute a great deal to the club without being involved in the day to day running of SCB.

To be eligible to win the Members’ Award, a member must be nominated by a fellow Silver City Blues Member.   Any club member can be nominated. Nominations should contain who you are nominating and brief description of why that member would be deserving of the award.  Nominations can be made in writing via e-mail to the club president at or to any individual member of the committee. Nominations can be made throughout the year up until the 25th November.  All nominations will be collated and made available to the membership. A shortlist will be created and a vote will take place in the lead up to the clubs’ Annual Christmas Party where the Award will be presented.
