Thank you to all who took part in our 2018 Spike Bullying campaign. It was a tremendous success.
In total we had more than 30 entries on Twitter and Instagram, and picking a winner was not easy. In the end, one proved to standout from the rest in terms of spirit, inclusion and originality.
Congratulations to the Kodiak Black 16U Girls team from Prince George for showing us why sport is awesome. This group showcased sportsmanship, respecting their opponent and inclusion to a tee, by inviting their opponents to a dance party before their match.
Such a cool idea girls. It’s moments like this that remind us why we love sport.
“Super proud to coach this fun group of athletes,” said Dayna Long, the team’s coach, via Facebook post. “Thanks for recognizing their spirit and sportsmanship!”
She also added that they will make good use of the $300 dollar team building money grand prize.
And honourary mention goes out to the Sky Volleyball Club for their submission. Definitely worth a watch.
