The Athlete of the Year Awards, founded by Sport BC, is the longest standing sport recognition event in Canada. Awards in 18 different categories are given each year to athletes, coaches, and officials for their performance and contribution to sport in our province.
Nominations are received from the provincial and multi-sport organizations, high schools, colleges, or universities. Finalists and winners are selected by a committee of 20 highly regarded BC sportswriters, broadcasters, and amateur sport leaders.

Presidents Award
Michael Mizera has been a tireless volunteer for BC Blind Sports for many years. He is a retired teacher of the visually impaired and also worked with the provincial vision outreach centre, In these roles, Michael worked to ensure that many BC students who are blind had opportunities in physical activity through BC Blind Sports.
Michael continues to promote participation in physical activity and PE by BC students who are blind and volunteers in assisting this to happen. Michael has also turned out to be a hidden Jewel, volunteering in BC Blind Sports' December fundraising event in the gift wrap booth at Oakridge Shopping Centre. Michael has volunteered in the gift wrap booth for a number of years and in 2015 spent almost every day in December there, assisting us to raise important funds to ensure our programs are able to continue and we can provide more services to blind children, youth, and adults in BC.
