Establishing Your Sports Recognition Program

It’s no secret that everyone likes a little recognition, and for kids it can be the determining factor when deciding to stay with an activity or not. If your sports program or activity has a recognition program, or if you’re just starting to develop one, here are some tips to make it a meaningful program:

  • Keep notes throughout the season on each player’s progress to help you recognize individual effort and improvement.
  • Make recognition a part of each practice and game – highlight someone who’s improving, demonstration good sportsmanship, and the one who made the big play!
  • Have parents capture action shots of kids that you can distribute with their awards.
  • Plan an end-of-season event where players can relax and have fun with their teammates.
  • When presenting the award, share a specific comment on each child.
