Over 30 years ago, past president Sam Breuklander wanted to honor Long Beach's middle school athletes at the end of their schoolyear. For many middle schoolers, that will be the last time they compete in organized school sports. Sam's vision was to honor the team champions, boys and girls, in each division for each sport offered by the middle schools in Long Beach.
With the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions, the middle school sports and the banquet were not held in 2020 or 2021.
Watch for details on the 2022 Middle School Banquet, which for the first time will take place over two evenings in early June, because the school district has expanded middle school sports into three divisions.
This is a Club funded event, free to the student athletes and their parents. We will be seeking donations toward the cost of the venue, the food, the printed program and the awards. Sample requests:
- $150 pays for 10 student plaques.
- $70 pays for a team plaque.
Contact Keith Hansen, coordinator, via email to volunteer and/or donate items needed.
The 2019 Middle Schools Sports Banquet was a great success. Thank you to all who contributed!
