The Jerry McCann Sportsmanship Award, a perpetual trophy awarded on the annual basis, was first presented in 2012.
The definition of sportsmanship is this: An aspiration or ethos that a sport or activity will be enjoyed for its own sake, with proper consideration for fairness, ethics, respect and a sense of fellowship with one’s competitors. It is never a single act or deed, but rather an attitude of teamwork, tireless contribution and support of others. A true sportsman does not compete to promote him or herself. They compete for the joy of the sport, love of the animal and respect for their fellow competitors. The person honored with the Jerry McCann Sportsmanship Award must epitomize all of these traits.
The Jerry McCann Sportsmanship Award is a perpetual trophy awarded on an annual basis at the NWRCHA Year-End Banquet.
The award was first presented in 2012, beginning with its namesake, NWRCHA Hall of Fame member Jerry McCann.
