Proscovia has been  an outstanding  performer in netball, helping Uganda's qualify for the World Netball championships due in Sydney.

Proscovia, who now turns up for English Club Loughborough Lightning University, has been an all-round player turning up for NIC netball club and  UCU women basketball team. She was the top scorer in Uganda's campaign and has been regarded as Africa's top attacker.

Kipsiro won Uganda's only gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. Yunus Ssentamu, Uganda's top scorer in CHAN and  a player who guided his club, DR Congo side AS Vita to the Champions League final was also among the top nominees together with basketballer Clare Lamono, who has been outstanding all through the season.

Proscovia might also  win a double, as the She Cranes netball team are also frontrunners for the team of the year award.

The She Cranes, who have had a successful year, winning almost  all the tournaments they have competed in and  also qualifying for the World championships will be  battling against Cricket Cranes, who made a recovery to qualify for the ICC Division II qualifiers and Vision Volleyball Club for winning the volleyball league.
