How it All Began
The Scugog Sports Hall of Fame was officially established by Township Council in the fall of 2006. Following this, the Hall of Fame Committee was confirmed in early 2007 with the express intent to formally recognize Scugog’s sporting history and traditions. It was also mandated to select local athletes, teams and builders for special recognition as a result of outstanding athletic accomplishments at the regional, provincial, national or international level.
Since its inception, the Committee has endeavoured to identify and catalogue Scugog’s numerous athletes, teams and builders. The selection of the inductees demonstrates the scope of Scugog’s athletes and their terms of sporting influence beginning in the early 1900’s right through until today.
Scugog has a rich sporting heritage and it is the Sports Hall of Fame Committee’s responsibility to identify it, document it and celebrate it!
The Sports Hall of Fame is located at the Scugog Shores Heritage Centre and Archives, 1655 Reach Street, Port Perry, on the second floor of the Scugog Arena.
