The Fall 2016 Award Winner is pictured above.  The Spring 2017 nominatiopns will open up once the season begins.

 

While BAYS expects all of its members to practice good sportsmanship as a general rule, we believe examples of outstanding sportsmanship should be recognized and rewarded.

Accordingly, BAYS has established a Sportsmanship Award which is presented to those teams that have been nominated and subsequently selected by the sportsmanship award committee to receive the award.  Teams that earn the award receive special T shirts and a team picture is posted on the BAYS website in recognition of this honor.

Nominations were received from referees and opposing coaches this season and there were a number of teams that exhibited examples of outstanding sportsmanship.

After considering all of the submissions, and having investigated the comments received, the committee has selected the Natick boys’ grade 7/8 team, coached by Robert Bauer, assisted by Kevin Johnson and Jeannette Christensen to receive the Fall 2016 BAYS Sportsmanship Award.  

It should be noted that the team was recognized for demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship throughout the season and that the coaches were recognized for emphasizing sportsmanship during their previous coaching seasons as well.

Since the tone is set at the top, Robert, Kevin, and Jeannette are to be congratulated for setting the proper example for their parents and players every season.  They are a credit to their town organization as well as to BAYS in general.
