12 Ideas for Fall Sports Season Honors and Awards
The fall sports season is wrapping up, which means coaches and booster clubs are planning fall season awards ceremonies. If planning an athletes’ awards banquet has fallen on your shoulders this year, here are some ideas for how to honor the standout players and teams at your school.
Player Performance Awards
Most sports teams give awards for player performance. Use performance awards to recognize your top achievers and players who have improved the most over the season.
- MVP: All-Around Player
- MVP: Offensive Player
- MVP: Defensive Player
- Most Improved Player
- Most Assists
- Most Goals/Points/Touchdowns
- Personal Record Achievers
- School Record Achievers
Player Attitude Awards
Coaches know that great teams are built on attitude, not just performance. Recognize the players on your team that contributed positively to your team’s culture and attitude.
- Team Leader
- Best Mental Attitude
- Most Hustle
If your awards are part of a school-wide ceremony, get together with your fellow coaches or booster clubs and decide which team has earned the Outstanding Team Award. Use this award to recognize superior performance, most improved performance, or excellent sportsmanship.
What to Give as Awards
Now that you have your awards figured out, what do you give your athletes as recognition? Trophies are a traditional giveaway for athlete awards, but there are hundreds of other items you can give away as awards. Here are some of our favorites.
- Apparel. Give away hoodies, hats, gloves, and scarves for the winter season.
- Medallions. Students can carry these in their backpacks or keep them in their lockers.
- Pins. High-school athletes love adding bling to their letterman jackets.
- Ribbons. Another traditional giveaway that athletes can display in lockers or their bedrooms.
- Backpack or Gear Bag. Shows off school spirit and is something athletes can use for years.
