Every year Manitoba Organization of Disc Sports (MODS) recognizes the achievements and contributions of local athletes, coaches, volunteers, and key members of our community.
Presented each year at the MODS annual general meeting, this award recognizes a person, group, or team that has gone out of their way to make MODS a better organization or to help us improve our disc community. This award symbolizes the true spirit of ultimate and is the most prestegious honour MODS can give a current or past member. Upon receiving the award, the recipient is granted free lifetime membership to MODS and thanks for their service and committment.
This award goes to someone who, over the course of the year, put in countless hours of service to help MODS events run smoothly. This is usually someone the organization couldn't have done without during peak times and at key events. They are awarded with their name permanently engraved on the MODS Volunteer of the Year trophy and they also recieve a gift from MODS. The award is presented each year at the MODS annual gerenal meeting.
MODS is happy to announce this year's Volunteers of the Year.
