Update as of February 4, 2015:
The Sport Council of Red Deer (SCoRD) has formally dissolved as of December 2014.
Knowing the benefit of having a collective and unified voice for amateur sport in Red Deer, community conversations will begin in mid-2015 to explore alternate approaches to achieve that collective goal in a sustainable and relevant manner.
Special thanks to all of the past Board members and supporters for their collective efforts that led to the numerous successes since the fall of 2009.
With respect to the celebration of sport excellence in Red Deer – the annual Community Sport Awards and Banquet will not happen in its traditional form in 2015.
Instead, several initiatives and events offered throughout the year to bring attention to the great contributions being made by athletes, coaches, volunteers and businesses will occur.
Local sport organizations will soon receive communication directly related to this development, proposed ideas regarding new sport promotion initiatives, as well as information on future discussions.

* Assets of the Board will be placed in trust with the “Communities in Action” trust with the Red Deer and District Community Foundation for future use to support sport development in Red Deer when appropriate.
