Matt Twenter Sportsmanship award

Every year our players grades 1-5 receive a trophy. This is NOT a participation trophy! This is a symbol for our young players to remember what it is to demonstrate good sportsmanship with their peers, coaches and referrees. Matt Twenter tragically passed away at a young age. He will always be remembered as having a smile on his face, respecting his coaches, teammates and referrees and generally loved to play all sports.
