Prince George Sports Hall of Fame

The Prince George Sports Hall of Fame

The Prince George Sports Hall of Fame originated in 1996 when a group of local sports enthusiasts came together with the dream of creating a Hall of Fame to recognize the city's and district's top athletes, builders and teams.

On the board were Neil King (Chair), Shirley Gratton, Neil Fowlie, Mike Jenkins, Ken Pineo, Bette McKay, Geoff Paynton, Ken Stanyer, Dave McWalter and Brian Kelly. It is because of these dedicated sports enthusiasts that the Prince George Sports Hall of Fame is a reality.

Since its creation, the Prince George Sports Hall of Fame has inducted 75 individuals and two teams in 24 sports.

We currently have displays of our inductees at the CN Centre Connector, the Northern Sport Centre at UNBC, the Aquatic Centre and at Exploration Place. A number of local businesses also have displays of our inductees. Our next major step is to find a "permanent home."

As our city grows and matures so does the Prince George Sports Hall of Fame.
