The San Leandro Sports Foundation’s Sports Hall of Fame
Our tentatively scheduled October 2018 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony has been moved to early spring of 2019 with the date to be announce.
Most High School and College Hall of Fame ceremonies are held in the spring when they are less likely to conflict with the busy fall school sports schedules. In fact, our October event caused some inconvenience for the sports programs and the athletic department at San Leandro High School. Attendance was especially problematic for the popular football team players, coaches and parents.
As we move forward with this event, we need to more fully engage the school community and the active parent groups therein. We need the continuity of the high school to ensure the perpetuity of the SLSF’s Sports Hall of Fame, and we need the Sports Hall of Fame honor to be a relevant and achievable goal in the minds of our student/athletes. After all, the today’s students/athletes are tomorrows Hall of Famers. Moving our event to spring give us a better opportunity of fulfilling both of these objectives.
We have a full slate of 2018 nominees and we are diligently vetting each one to determine the Class of 2019. We will most likely continue the same ceremony format and venue.
Thank you for your patience and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
