Gerry Smith 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 CT's Submarine 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.
