Annual Awards

Washington Irish RFC Annual Awards

Every year, the Irish reflect back on the past year, thank friends, family, sponsors for their continued commitment to the club and most importantly, recognize a select few players for their accomplishments with the Irish: MVP, Most Improved, Club Twit, Newcomer of the Year and Player’s Player.

Player’s Player: One of the awards that is given out annually is the “Player’s Player”. Voted on by the club, this is awarded to the individual that most exemplifies what it means to be an Irish Player.  It encompasses both on the field and off the field activities including practice, training and mentorship.
