Fall 2019 BAYS Sportsmanship Awards

Fall 2019 BAYS Sportsmanship Winner

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 will be 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 will receive special T shirts and a team picture will be posted on the BAYS website in recognition of this honor.  The Fall 2019 award recipients will be pictured on this page as soon as a team picture is available.
After considering all of the submissions, and having investigated the comments received, the committee has selected the Concord-Carlyle Monarchs boys’ grade 4 team, coached by Jeff Furman and assisted by Kevin Neijstrom and Matt Kilmartin, to receive the Fall 2019 Sportsmanship Award.  

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

Since the tone is set at the top, Jeff is to be congratulated for setting the proper example for his staff, parents and players every season.  He is a credit to his town organization as well as to BAYS in general.

Nominations can be submitted by referees and opposing coaches this season for teams that exhibit examples of outstanding sportsmanship. The deadline to submit nominations will be announced once the season start date is confirmed.
