Imperial ARCS Awards 2011
June 29, 2011
On Friday 10 June, Sport Imperial held the annual Imperial ARCS (Appreciate, Recognise and Celebrate sport) event. The event brought together over 140 guests including students, staff, coaches, officials, volunteers, sponsors and partner organisations.
England Rugby Union 7’s Head Coach Ben Ryan entertained guests with his story, including his history as a student, his failures and successes and the path to his current elite coaching position. Many students were able to relate to his experiences and had some great questions to ask Ben. Guests were also treated to a fantastic martial arts showcase by “Shorinji Kempo”, with students demonstrating hard and soft self-defence techniques.
Awards were presented in the following categories to the winners of: Coach of the Year, Sports Ambassador of the Year, Athlete of the Year, Sports Writer of the Year, Sports Photograph of the Year, the Ethos Award, Student Team of the Year and Student Club of the Year.
We would like to congratulate all those that were nominated for awards and of course the winners. Sport Imperial would also like to thank all of our sponsors and special guest who partnered with us to make this event such a success. We look forward to making next year’s event even bigger and better.
