Sportsmanship Awards - February 11
The Gerry Smith Awards will be presented at halftime
of the Fitch Falcons Game on Thursday, February 11th at 7:00pm. Each team
selects an individual on the team to receive the Award
In 2005, the Parks & Recreation Commission initiated
the creation of the Gerry Smith Sportsmanship Award upon the passing of Mr.
Smith, a commissioner who served for many years. Mr. Smith’s passion
for basketball and his work as a youth basketball referee led to the
creation of the award in his honor. The Parks and Recreation Commission
recognizes the outstanding sportsmanship displayed by all players, but seeks
to recognize those individuals who display exceptional teamwork, respect,
effort and behavior.
This year in honor of
Century, prior to the game we’ll have a Navy color guard present the
flags, a sailor sing the National Anthem and Navy personnel, retirees and
families will be recognized. Additionally, Gerry Smith Awards will be
presented to individuals on Navy youth basketball teams.
In order to get free admission, kids have to wear
their youth basketball jersey, military personnel are requested to be in
uniform, and family members or retirees will have to inform ticket staff of
who they are.
For more information, please contact
Ben Morse or call 860-536-5680.
