The Sportsperson Award
Each Round, three players in each team (from U8’s – O45’s), will be nominated to receive 3, 2, or 1 point/s after their game. The 3,2,1 points are to be distributed at the team’s discretion. They may be awarded by a different parent each week, or voted for by players / parents each week. The Sportsperson Award is generally for the most consistent player, however teams have the ability to acknowledge other forms of Sportsman like behaviour in the awarding of the weekly points.
Points for each round should be submitted to Cath via text or email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Don't forget to include your team and the match they were awarded for eg U8 Wallaby Rnd 3 vs Winston Hills. The points need to be submitted prior to the start of the next game. Sportsman Award points will not be post-dated. They will be awarded weekly. If none are received by the following game, no points will be awarded for the previous match.
The points will be tallied by a club representative and the player with the highest points score at the conclusion of the season, will receive the team’s Sportsman Award for the year. Only points submitted each week will be used in calculating the winner of this award. Additional points or manipulation of the result in any way will not be accepted. The club representative will submit the winners for trophies at Presentation. It may be the case that the result is a tie. In that case both players will be awarded the team award.
N.B. Each Coach will submit his/her Coaches Award recipient as usual at the end of the season. The Coaches Award is a separate award. The coach may determine whomever they see fit to get this award. The Coach Award winner can not be the same person who won the 3,2,1 points award in a single season.
(Please note: Girls who play in a mixed team on a Saturday and a girl’s team on a Sunday are eligible to receive the Sportsperson Award for either or both teams. They can also receive the Coach's Award for both teams, but they are not eligible to receive 2 awards in a single team.)
