The Arena Sports Factory’s “Athlete of the Week” is a scholarship program that recognizes outstanding local high school athletes. Coaches, parents, and community members may nominate an Athlete of the Week to The Arena Sports Factory. Each week The Arena Sports Factory will select a high school athlete based on nominations from area coaches. Weekly winners will receive a performance “Athlete of the Week” t-shirt and may be featured on The Arena Sports Factory’s website, Facebook page, road marquee, and print publications. At the end of the school year, a $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one of the weekly winners to go towards the college of their choice.
Weekly winners will be chosen from students from 9th-12th grade, however the final $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a senior. The school with the winning “Athlete of the Year” will also receive a two-week team training package that includes speed/weight room for two hours, four days a week for the winner’s team for the following season.
We are very excited to be able to honor and recognize our local high school athletes and sports teams, and we hope parents, coaches and students are equally excited and take advantage of this great opportunity.
