2017 Sportsmanship Awards

This year, the Strawberry Soccer Invitational’s Sportsmanship program provided three patches for each team with instructions for the team to award a single opposing player from each game who best exemplified the qualities of sportsmanship. Also, we encouraged the winners to enter their names into a drawing for one of two $50 gift certificates from Soccer Plus in Centerville and Westerville.

This year’s winners are:
Charlie Barnes from the Warrior Soccer Club
Emma Lear from the Columbus United Soccer Club

Congratulations to both Charlie and Emma!

Sportsmanship Award Gift Certificate Winner

We are thrilled to add a new element to this year’s Sportsmanship Program by including a $50 Gift Certificate to a single, randomly drawn. In addition to the actual Sportsmanship Award, recipients were asked to submit their name at the various tournament headquarters tents for a lottery drawing.
With 330 participating teams, 990 Sportsmanship Patches were included in the coach’s packets. We are thrilled to have received more than 300 entries – almost one-third of those available.
We are pleased to announce the winner of the Soccer Plus Fifty Dollar Gift Certificate. Her name is Delana P, and she plays for the Girls U9 team Grand Lake United Stars.
Congratulations Delana!
