CHAMP Elite Team

The CHAMP Elite Team Program is CHAMP’s longest standing and greatest impacting initiative. Teams apply for the Elite Team Award and receive the Elite Team designation when they have demonstrated during their athletic season character excellence, both on and off the field, by designing and implementing a season-long character development plan, completing at least one community service project, and by submitting testimonials from parents, players, and officials of the impact a focus on character had on the team. Currently, CHAMP receives applications for Elite Team status from Poudre School District High Schools and Junior Highs, City of Fort Collins Recreation teams, as well as from a number of youth athletic clubs including the Fort Collins Baseball Club and the Fort Collins Soccer Club. Teams who obtain the Elite Team Award are recognized by CHAMP through individual player certificates, a shirt, backpack, hat or visor, and recognition in the local paper and at the annual CHAMP Celebration Breakfast.
