What sports are eligible for nomination?

Eligible sport candidates for induction must meet (1) of the guidelines below, and additionally meet two (2) of the remaining three (3) criteria outlined below.

Should my nomination form be typed or hand written?

All nominations must be typed. Simply save a copy of the nomination form to your computer and fill it in. Once the form is complete, just print it off.

How much detail should I include in the nomination form?

The more detail that is provided in the nomination form the better. Do not assume that the Induction Selection Committee knows every detail about the individual or team that you are nominating.

For Example: If an Athlete you are nominating played in the NHL, do not simply put they played in the NHL, list the team(s) they played for (local, provincial, national, international), goals scored, records, awards, dates, names of tournaments and events (local, provincial, national, international), include EVERYTHING (wins, loses, medals, awards) etc. Again, the more detail the better!
