To be considered for admission to the Hall of Fame, athletes must have been a resident of Haliburton County for a minimum of five (5) years before or during their sporting accomplishments.
To be considered for admission to the Hall of Fame, athletes shall have been or be outstanding in their respective sport or have achieved better than average proficiency in a number of sports (even if not reaching the absolute top level in any one sport). The level ‘outstanding’ must be applicable to competition against peer athletes over a period of at least five (5) years or more.
Competition involves competing at local levels and going on to district, regional, provincial, national and/or international events. Competition at the High School, Junior, College, and University or Professional sports levels should be included. Distinction should be made on the nomination form as to the reason for the nomination. An athlete who is prominent locally over a long period of time should not necessarily be downgraded if they have limited success at a higher level or in the professional ranks. Conversely, an athlete who has limited success locally should not be downgraded if they have achieved top proficiency in a wider area whether this is at the amateur or professional level.
In selecting an athlete, the Committee shall consider the athlete’s ability, level of success and accomplishment, sportsmanship and overall contribution to their sport(s) or teams.

In selecting a builder the Committee shall consider the builder’s character, sportsmanship and overall contribution to their sport(s), team(s) or league(s).
