What's so different about a "MSP Love" Medal?
In 2012, we lost a vibrant part of our family at MSP with the passing of Josh Williams. Josh, the one who phrased “MSP LOVE,” made it his mission to build relationships with everyone he met, while reminding us
of the importance of living life to the fullest each and every day. Today, MSP has one huge family that includes (but is not limited to) our staff, umpires, coaches, parents & players. As a family, we have committed ourselves to continuing Josh’s mission to teach and lead others in demonstrating that same "MSP LOVE" he so effortlessly displayed every day.
In youth sports we spend so much time chasing the performance based accomplishments, often missing the impact youth sports can have on character. That’s why our goal is to not award the best athlete or best player
on the team, but to award a player who demonstrates a Championship attitude in other areas of life that we feel are more important. This is what makes this award different from a game MVP award!
Attributes to look for when handing out this medal:
· Displays outstanding character on the field
· Extraordinary example of sportsmanship
· Example of respect
· Example of hustle
At the conclusion of each pool game, you will award a player from the opposing team with a “MSP LOVE” medal, and the opposing team will do the same for you.
