Gold Coast Sporting Awards
Grasssroots Team of the Year – People’s Choice
The winners of the 53rd Gold Coast Sports Star Awards will be announced at a gala event at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on Friday 8 July 2022.
The Gold Coast Sports Stars Awards celebrate the success of Elite Athletes, Grassroots Clubs and Sports Volunteers during 2021.
They recognise the Gold Coast’s prominent up-and-coming athletes, as well as recognising those that have significantly contributed to the Gold Coast Sporting Community with the prestigious GC Hall of Fame.
This year the 1029 Hot Tomato Gold Coast Sports Star Grassroots Team Award nominees are:
Southport Tigers Black (Under 13 Div 1)
The title of most dominant team across all Rugby League Gold Coast competitions goes to this incredible Southport Black side.
The Tigers romped to a perfect 12-0 regular season record, won their major semi-final by 70 points and the grand final by a score of 50-20.
The stats don’t always tell the tale but in this instance, they do. Southport finished the regular season with a for and against of 600-82, more than doubling any other team’s points total and conceding 90 fewer points than the next-best team in the division.
Burleigh Bombers (QFA Division 2 South Reserves)
Twelve wins and no losses; the only team in the competition to kick more than 1000 points across the season and the Bombers did it easily, with 1325. A percentage of 338.01% headlined the ease with which Burleigh handled its rivals.
It all came to a head in the grand final, where Burleigh comprehensively beat Bond University 15.7 (97) to 5.4 (34).
Mudgeeraba Blue (Gold Coast Cricket 3rd Grade)
The only team in Gold Coast senior cricket to complete an unbeaten 2020-21 season, with its four draws all coming via washouts.
Mudgeeraba Blue dominated the 3rd Grade competition last season, headlined by an incredibly miserly bowling attack. They conceded just 1446 runs across 12 matches – the least in the grade by more than 450 runs.
Gold Coast Force Futsal (Mens)
Won Football Queensland F-League 2021. Claiming both the League and Finals wrapping up an undefeated season, of the F-League Premiership-Championship. This is the 4th straight trophy for the team with 7 games played this year with Goals For: 34 and Goals Against: 6.
Helensvale Hogs (U12s rugby)
The kings of the under-12 division were rugby union’s most dominant side on the Gold Coast this season, with a perfect 11-0 record and a points differential of 413 points.
