SELECTION GUIDELINES?

Nominations for induction into the Greater Flint Area Sports Hall of Fame can be made on-line, or if you choose, by obtaining nomination forms from the receptionist at the Genesys Athletic Club, or by using the Contact Us button on this website.

The GFASHOF Board will consider all nominations submittes prior to April 1st for recognition at the annual induction banquet held the first Saturday after the Thanksgiving weekend.

Nominations can be made in each of the following three categories.

Individuals

Individuals nominated for Hall of Fame consideration must have demonstrated exceptional athletic achievement. Individual athletes and coaches who have excelled at the high school, college, professional, world, or Olympic levels would certainly merit consideration for induction.

Individuals serving on the GFASHOF Board or Selection Committee are not eligible to be nominated. Professional athletes in team sports are not eligible to be nominated until they have been retired from their sport for three years.

Teams

In 1992, the GFASHOF began the practice of recognizing two teams each year that again, have established themselves with exceptional achievement at the state and national levels. In nominating teams for induction, nominators have the choice of suggesting a "scholastic" (local, school-based) team or a "non-scholastic" (typically recreational) team for Hall of Fame recognition.

Special Service

As the title would indicate, this award is designed to recognize individuals whose service, support and leadership has contributed significantly to athletics in our area.

No individual nominee will be formally inducted without his/her approval or the approval of his/her family.
