We believe there’s something more important than just winning or losing a tournament. We believe that the team, school, and fans who support their athletes with dignity and class are the true champions. That’s why we’ve proudly sponsored the WIAA/Rural Mutual Insurance Sportsmanship Award for 56 years.
We would like to congratulate the Oostburg Flying Dutchmen on being this year’s recipient of the Boys Soccer Sportsmanship award.
When talking with Head Coach, Ryan TenPas, we asked him what this award meant to him as a coach, the team and community along with how they teach their athletes about sportsmanship.
Coach TenPas has been coaching at the High School level since 2014, and he coached at the youth and club level prior to that.
He also went on to comment that, “Coaching at the high school level is fun because you get to watch the boys develop as players and individuals over four years rather than just a season or two,” said Coach TenPas
Congratulations again on a great season and winning the WIAA/Rural Mutual Sportsmanship award. This is a great achievement for the Oostburg community.
