FIYA AWARDS ASSEMBLY
Starting with the 2022-23 school year, an annual FIYA Awards Assembly will be held each year in early June to honor and recognize Division 1 student athletes as follows:
All FIYA Teams: This award is for League Events where FIYA conducts Division 1 or Division 1A playoffs. For school teams that make FIYA playoffs, they will be allowed to nominate players to make the ALL FIYA TEAM for that League Event.
All FIYA Academic: For every Division 1 team that participates in a FIYA League Event, a student athlete who is on the school’s Division 1 roster and maintains a cumulative GPA for the year of at least 3.90 is on the All FIYA Academic Team.
Shanese Washington Memorial Scholarship Winners: $500 scholarship presented to winners who best exemplify the FIYA Sportsmanship Pledge and write the winning essay as selected by the scholarship committee.
A league championship plaque is given to the first place team in all Divisions. For teams that tie for first place, FIYA uses the head to head result to break the tie. Where there is no head to head result, multiple league championship plaques will be given. For Division 1 only, FIYA provides a city-wide playoff format for League Events and issues team and individual awards to the finalists.
A team plaque will be given to the top finishing teams in each Tournament Event (including but not limited to: Cross Country meets, Track & Field meets, and Dance competitions) and individuals ribbons and/or medals will be given to the top finishing individuals in each Tournament Event. In addition, for some FIYA Tournament Events, FIYA will issue team seasonal tournament champion awards.
