BAYS Sportsmanship Award Recipients

BAYS expects all of its members to practice good sportsmanship. We believe examples of outstanding sportsmanship should be recognized and rewarded and created the BAYS Sportsmanship Award. The Award is given in both the fall and the spring BAYS season.

Sportsmanship Award nominations are received from referees and opposing coaches during the season. From these nominations, the Sportsmanship Award Committee determines which teams will be presented with the BAYS Sportsmanship Award. It should be noted that teams are recognized for demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship throughout the season.

Teams receive special Sportsmanship Award T shirts and have their team picture posted here in recognition of this honor.
