The inducted members of PEI Sports Hall of Fame and Museum include both male and female individuals, as well as teams as a whole. These members have photographs, newspaper clippings, letters of support, etc. to give evidence to their distinction in athletic competition.
The era in which some of the legendary athletes date back to as early as the pre 1920’s and right up until present, inducting 4 new members annually. There are 2 categories to which an athlete can be inducted into: 1) Athletes, and 2) Builders of Sport. Athletes must be retired from active competition for a period of five years, or be considered to be five years past the peak of the career. Builders must have made a significant contribution to their sport, for a period of at least 10 years. Coaches are included in the builder category.
Teams may also be considered for induction, providing the peak of their performance was at least five years prior.
