For season play, all players and coaches are awarded a t-shirt. When possible, the t-shirts for players are ordered using their jersey size to determine a best t-shirt size. Additionally, t-shirts feature graphic art incorporating association identification and the year. T-shirts for adults are ordered in appropriate sizes.
In the Rookie Leagues (1st and 2nd grades), we don't have tournaments. Instead following final regular season game, MCBBA awards a medallion to all players.
For Junior, Major, and Senior leagues, MCBBA awards are distributed at a league awards ceremony which immediately follows each league’s final tournament game.
For tournament play in Junior and Major Leagues (3rd through 6th grades):
MCBBA awards a trophy to the players of the top two (2) teams in each tournament. Leagues of 10 or more teams are split into two tournaments (“gold”, “silver”) based upon season record. Each tournament is awarded trophies. When possible, the trophies are sized to indicate position and inscribed with “Mid-Cities Basketball Association,” the year, the name of the league, and the position.
For tournament play in the Senior League (7th through 8th grades):
Trophies are not awarded. Instead, the commissioner will acknowledge the champion during the award's ceremony.
Sportsmanship Award Each league selects one deserving player to receive a full scholarship for the following season
(if he or she has eligibility remaining) based upon his/her sportsmanship. For the boys' leagues, the award is memory of Bill Rippy, long-time MCBBA President.
For the girls' leagues, the award is in memory of Louise Koontz long time former girl's commissioner. Each award is accompanied by a suitably framed certificate.
This award is based on voting by head coaches and commissioner in the league with results tabulated by VP of Administration.
The award is given to the player in the league who best exemplifies the following:
