Norman Silver Sports Leadership Award
The Norman Ronald Silver Sports Leadership Award is presented each year to ‘an athlete who exemplifies the true meaning of team spirit and sportsmanship by serving as a leader and role model for others’.
This year’s recipient is Zach Chulsky. Zach was nominated by his football coach, who described him as a “true class act” as a leader and as a player. Zach works “Full speed at all times, leading all challenges in front of him. He is a breathe of fresh air to any coach. Admired by his teammates for his positive attitude, when things get tough you can always look to Zach to give a helping hand to a younger less experienced teammate.” Zach is also a great player: he has been the number one football player in Calgary youth football since he seven years old, and is setting records in both football and in track and field. Zach is a role model for his team mates: “unselfish when over achieving, he always looks out for the players walking in his footsteps, and he sacrifices everything he has to allow his fellow player to achieve their best.”
Mazel Tov Zach on a job well done!!
