"Celebration of Champions" HS Boys & Girls Basketball Banquet
Panhandle FCA is proud to announce that it will host its first ever "FCA Celebration of Champions" high school boys & girls basketball banquet, Sunday, February 10, 2019. This event will be a celebration of character and integrity of those who play and coach basketball in the Texas Panhandle! Varsity players (those who played at least 75% of the season on the varsity roster, varsity coaches, and executive school administration are invited to this event. NO split varsity, sub-varsity, junior high players, or general public are invited to this event.
This year, our speaker will be Coach Steve Gomez, head girls basketball coach of the Lubbock Christian University Lady Chapparals.
Because we are honoring the players and coaches of all varsity teams in the Panhandle, there will be NO COST to any coaches, players, MVP parents, or administrators for this event. Each year we will bring in a high profile speaker of excellence to encourage and motivate all who hear their uplifting and life-giving words.
The only requirement for every team that attends this event is we will ask all the players from each team to elect one player as their "FCA MVP." We will be sending all coaches the criteria for this election and the winning player will be selected by the majority vote of his teammates. The selection criteria will center around the Four (4) Core Values of FCA which are: Integrity, Teamwork, Serving, and Excellence. All the selected FCA MVPs will be highly honored during this event, and each will walk away with an FCA MVP award. At some point during the evening, a picture will be taken with each team's MVP, their Head Coach, and our speaker. We anticipate that all MVP winners will be featured in our local newspaper and on our local nightly news broadcasts. Each MVP's parents will also be invited to this event.
Each team needs to have a "designated" coach contact who will be responsible for keeping up with attendance commitments of players, coaches, administrators, and the MVP's parents, and who will submit these numbers to FCA at the appropriate deadline dates. This year's banquet details are as follows:
