The Rockford Public Schools Athletic Hall of Fame inducts 5-6 individuals or teams per year at the annual Champions Ball. Nominations are accepted from the community, and a panel of voters from the Rockford Sports Coalition makes the final selections based on the information in the submissions. The 2023 Athletic Hall of Fame Awards will be held in February. Nominations will be accepted through October, 2023. The four HOF categories are Athlete, Coach, Service Award and Team. The criteria are that the individual athletes be former Rockford Public Schools student-athletes who achieved tremendous success in his/her sport during high school and/or after leaving RPS 205. Coaches must have had tremendous success as a coach for one or more RPS teams. Service Award recipients are any volunteer/educator/advocate who has made a valuable impact in athletics in Rockford Public Schools. Recognized teams may be any RPS 205 varsity team that celebrated success both locally and at the statewide or national level. The nominations that are made and not chosen for this year will be reconsidered in subsequent years. Nominators are encouraged to keep nominating their choices every year. To nominate someone for the 2020 awards, please fill out the following information. This year’s award winners will be announced and notified in October 2019, with ticket information available starting in November.
