In 2005, for the first time, SportsFive, in conjunction with Graphtex Sportswear and Mike Barnard, sponsored the Players of the Week program.
Although the awards were not given each week in 2005, progress was made. At the end of the season, "Players of the Year" were selected and announced during the post season tournaments.
Each week (or period), an "Offensive Player of the Week", a "Defensive Player of the Week" and a "Sportsman of the Week" are selected by a SportsFive Awards Committee. Nominations come from coaches, SportsFive reports, and Sectional Five officials.
Offensive and Defensive Award winners received a t-shirt from Graphtex and all three winners received certificates. Award winners are posted on the SportsFive. NET site.
