Sports Leagues Named Gainesville Heroes

December 7, 2012

At a town hall meeting on November 28, I had the privilege of recognizing the sports leagues in Western Prince William County and their boards of directors as Gainesville Heroes.

Sports play a large role in the Candland household, as I grew up playing basketball and football, and until recently I still participated as a high school basketball referee.  Many Saturday mornings, you can find the Candland family at a swim meet or a sports field.

The volunteers with various sports leagues in Prince William County devote countless hours towards providing a safe and fun athletic environment for the youth in our community.  From coaches to fans to referees to board members, there are many people involved with helping to teach important life skills through sports such as leadership, diligence and teamwork.

Here are the sports leagues that we recognized as Gainesville Heroes:

In addition, I gave a Gainesville Hero award to Mr. Jeff Bergman for his tireless efforts to improve sports experiences for youth in Western Prince William County and for his consistent advocacy for the sports leagues.

Again, I want to thank the numerous volunteers who make our sports leagues successful for their commitment towards the youth in our community.
