Geoff McKinnley Team Spirit Award
In recognition of his tireless work over the years, the Geoff McKinley Team Spirit Award is for players of all age groups.
This award recognises not necessarily the best player but the player who best displays the qualities of sportsmanship, commitment, dedication and team spirit. These are the qualities that our club strongly encouraging in all of our players.
Selection criteria includes the player who both on and off the field:
- Shows respect to all
- Interacts positively with team mates and players from other teams
- Supports team mates
- Shows persistence, determination and commitment throughout the season
- Participates in Club Activities
This very important award does not necessarily go to the player with the most talent or skill but to the player with the most dedication and sportsmanship. This player is someone who could be depended upon to be present at each and every game and training session, who works with the coach and teammates for the good of the whole team. This player is someone who every coach would like on their team due to their level of commitment and willingness to learn.
All Coaches and Team Managers are asked to submit names of players who would be deserving of this award and provide a brief written explanation as to why this player is being nominated via a nomination form. Those players who are nominated for an award will be presented with a certificate at Family Nights. At the end of the year all the nominations will be reviewed by a sub committee and one player will be chosen to receive the award. This will be presented at our whole club end of year Presentation Day.
