Inverness’ Tracy Tamijmarane recognised at Highland Awards
Inverness City Lions’ Tracy Tamijmarane was awarded the Performance Development Coach of the Year award at the 2019 Highland Coaching, Officiating and Volunteering Awards, which were hosted at Highland Rugby Football Club in Inverness back in November.
Tracy leads player development for Inverness City Lions, as well as coaching both the U14 and U15 teams. At Millburn Academy she coaches the U15 team and Tracy also works with the P5-P7 teams at Milton of Leys Primary School.
The event was run by High Life Highland, in partnership with sportscotland, to recognise the outstanding contribution and significant impact of local coaches. These coaches enable quality sport and physical activity opportunities to happen in communities across the Highlands.
The awards proved extremely popular, with 36 nominations received in the region, which was the most across all 32 local authorities in Scotland. The event was hosted to recognise a selection of the hard working and committed sports people in Highland, raising awareness of their achievements and celebrating the many successes.
Steve Walsh, Chief Executive of High Life Highland, was delighted to see the coaches receive recognition for their efforts:
“I really enjoyed hearing about the outstanding contribution and significant impact local coaches have made to enable quality sport and physical activity opportunities to happen in communities across the Highlands. The awards cement our partnership with sportscotland in recognising these contributions and it was a pleasure to be involved.”
