The Gerry Smith Awards will be presented at halftime
of a Fitch Falcons Game in February. 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.
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.
