We know sporting success does not come easily. To achieve such high levels of performance requires dedication, hard work and determination. To be nominated by a teacher or coach shows just how highly these individuals are rated.

Their success is also a credit to the support provided by their family, coaches and teachers, so we would like to congratulate them too.

We wish everyone on this list every success in your chosen sport and hope that many of you are nominated again in the future when you’ve gone that step further along your sporting journey.

Details of this year's Rising Stars will appear after the Awards Dinner on 5th March 2018.

Mike Booth, chair, Sport Newcastle Awards Committee
