"The Peer Award" is considered the highest recognition award available on any team. It is not selected by the coach, parents or any one person, but rather by the team as a whole. All players, and in some cases the spectators, vote for the recipient of this award. Everyone votes for the individual on their team who sets the example to follow, was committed, showed a positive spirit and in a nutshell " set the pace on their team for all to follow"- Often this same individual is also chosen as MVP (Most Valuable Player) for their team as well. The MVP award is based on season stats and performance only, and in some cases may be more than one individual, if the results were close.
