The NVSS Board established The Bill Thompson Sportsmanship Award in 2014 to honor Dr. Bill Thompson, a long-time NVSS player noted for his love of softball, spirited play, and appreciation of his teammates. Winners should exemplify the ideals found in the NVSS Creed and the Code of Conduct, recognizing that NVSS is recreational sport promoting health, fellowship, and fun. Sportsmanship also means: being supportive of teammates, acknowledging that your opponent holds similar deep-rooted aspirations and expectations as you, and affirming that, win or lose, you will walk off the field with pride for having participated in, not watched, this great team sport.
