The Bay State Games Athlete of the Year program was established to recognize individuals who excel above and beyond their athletic participation in the Bay State Games. Individuals are chosen based on overall achievements, involvement in the Bay State Games, involvement in their community, effort, sportsmanship, and attitude on and off the field. Nominations can be submitted by coaches, commissioners, parents, volunteers, and even other players.
Nomination forms can be found above, as well as at each event. Forms must be filled out and mailed into the office by August 1, 2017. Nominees will be chosen and notified by mid-August. Nominees will be submitted for the National Athlete of the Year on August 24, 2017.
