YOUTH SPORTS SPOTLIGHT

GP INTRODUCES CHARACTER AWARDS


We wrapped up another successful season of Fall Youth Sports on October 15th. A highlight this season was the addition of Character Awards handed out to our oldest divisions ages 11-14. Each coach has five character awards they may award to the most deserving players on their team. Each award reinforces the character of Christ striving to be more like him. Below are the award recipients for Fall Youth Sports 2016 and a brief description of why they deserved their award.
