We annually recognize and celebrate a vetted and elected list of individuals whose athletic achievements feature outstanding contributions to our sports history. Please provide us with the information below in order to nominate someone for consideration into the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame.
Nominations are open year round and the annual Induction Celebration is held in the spring.
All North Carolina natives should be eligible unless, in the judgment of the Board, they moved from the state (and never returned to live) at too early an age to be reasonably considered.
Any non-native who has come to the state and maintained an official residence for 10 consecutive years shall be eligible. Any non-native whose entire athletic career has been during the time of his/her residence in the state shall be eligible.
Any athlete in a lifetime sport such as golf, tennis, etc, preferably shall have reached the peak of his/her performance prior to selection or shall have retired from active participation.
Any administrator, coach, or member of the media shall have reached the age of 62 or shall have retired from the field prior to selection. An exception may be one who has worked or coached in the state for 20 years.
