Our newest awards program, "Athletes in Excellence," recognizes those athletes who possess these traits both on and off the playing field. We are currently accepting nominations from those of you who know of an athlete who dedicates their energy to their sport and to the betterment of their community. We believe it is important to recognize these athletes and their volunteer work. By doing so, we are sharing their positive impact with the next generation of elite athletes.

Do you know of an athlete who uses precious time away from training or other personal goals to volunteer with organizations or individuals to make this world a better place? Email and tell us the story of the athlete. Why do you think they deserve to be a recipient of the "Athletes in Excellence" award?
