SAMA Achievers Award
We are introducing a new award in 2020 to recognise the achievements of our athletes who strive from week to week to improve their performance ratings but who may not necessarily be at a “high” standard.
The first Award will be for the current Summer season, and is based on points awarded for participation and improvement in performance during SAMA competition throughout the 2019-20 season. See the Awards page for further information.
