The Service to Sport Award is to recognise people who have given an outstanding and highly commendable contribution to Adelaide University Sport, or to sport at the University of Adelaide, of at least 10 years' duration for association-based service and 15 years for club-based service. It is regarded as a higher award than Club Letters in the case of club-based service. This award may be given posthumously. Honorary Life Membership of Adelaide University Sport, however, shall continue to be conferred upon any person who, in the opinion of the Council following consideration of a recommendation from the AU Sport Board, has rendered long and single service to the Association. It is regarded as a higher award than a Service Award.
