We are in motion for the 2023 KZN Sport Awards. The KZN Sport Awards are hosted and presented in partnership with the KwaZulu-Natal Sport Confederation. The Awards recognize and acknowledge the successes and commitment of athletes, teams, coaches, administrators, volunteers, technical officials, media personnel and sport and recreation bodies, during the awards qualification period.
