NWCAA Association Awards
MICHAEL GEE AWARD - U16 AAA Teams
This award is in honor of the late Michael Gee. Michael was a 15 year old NWCAA player that suddenly lost his life due to an undetermined heart condition in 2005. Michael's legacy will live on through the Michael Gee award. This award goes to a player on each U16 AAA team and will be nominated by his coach as most deserving player on the team. This will be determined on the combination of athletic performance, positive attitude, team commitment and the player being a positive ambassador.
