It is awarded to an applicant in his/her Grade 12 year or First Year Post-Secondary, who made significant contributions to the sport and the league, displayed a high level of sportsmanship and team spirit, all while maintaining the RCFHA philosophy. A decision will be made on the quantity of awards to be given out once all applications are received.
This scholarship serves as a testament to our commitment to supporting the development of our players, both on and off the floor. We firmly believe in the power of education and athletics to shape individuals into future leaders and contributors to our community.
