I was glad to be able to personally award the Salvation Army Gym their Runner Club Award from the USAWA at their USAWA meet last weekend. These awards, presented on behalf of the USAWA, were given out at the National Championships. However, since no representatives from the Salvation Army Gym were able to be present at Nationals, this meet of theirs was the perfect opportunity for me to be able to give them the recognition they deserve.
The Club Awards are the only special USAWA awards that are not selected by membership nomination/vote. Points are accrued throughout the year for various things like USAWA memberships that represent the club, club promotions, and participation of club members in USAWA competitions. The points are simply “added up”, and the clubs that earn the most points are the winners. So you can see that this award is actually EARNED!
Congratulations to the Salvation Army Gym for an outstanding past year in the USAWA! The next year will be a BIG ONE for them as well as they will be the host of the 2014 USAWA National Championships.
