One of the primary goals of our Athletic Association is to develop good sportsmanship in our student athletes. As a tangible way to show them the importance of sportsmanship, the Athletic Committee has instituted the Dr. Michael Cary Cavalier Spirit Award. The Award is given annually to two 8th grade students athletes (male and female) in either the School or Religious Education Program. Recipients are selected based upon demonstration of exceptional dedication to their team, their effort in practices and games, and their Christian attitude towards teammates, opponents and coaches.
To be considered for the award, players must be nominated. Coaches, parents or other participants or observers of the athletic program can make nominations. Players in any of the sports offered at Christ King (volleyball, basketball, track & field and softball) are eligible.
The nomination deadline is in May each year, at which time they are reviewed and the recipients determined by a subcommittee of the Athletic Committee consisting of the chair, vice chair, and volleyball, basketball, track and softball coordinators along with 8th Grade and Religious Education Representatives. The committee also seeks advisory input from the Pastor, School Principal and 8th Grade Homeroom and Religious Education Teachers.
If you have questions or comments about the award, please contact the current Athletic Committee Chair.
