Best Attitude

The Best Attitude award recognizes swimmers who epitomize many of the qualities that coaches value in swimmers. They are good teammates who encourage others in practice and in meets; they work hard in practice and do not complain; they show good sportsmanship in both victory and defeat. In short, they are a joy to coaches and to their fellow teammates. One boy and one girl in each age group receives a trophy to commemorate their superior attitude.

There are two specialized awards that relate to attitude. The Boss Hoss Award is given to the swimmers who attend every Boss Hoss (Saturday morning) practice. By getting up early on a weekend and swimming a longer practice, these swimmers show their dedication to improving their swimming. These swimmer are designated by a star on their certificate. The Best Older Buddy Award is given to the boy and girl who have proven to be the most supportive of their younger buddy teammates; they receive a gift card to Sugar Shack. And the Dependability Club includes all swimmers who were present at every single dual meet. These swimmers are recognized with a silver seal on their Ridgetop swim team certificate.
