NBL & SCL Battle of the Fans!

It is a well documented fact that a positive athletic experience for all students is a major factor in creating an overall positive school culture. To encourage that positive experience, is the Redwood Empire Battle of the Fans (BOTF) competition. BOTF will highlight the best student cheering section in both the North Bay and Sonoma County leagues. This student driven program calls for each school to create student leaders with the support of their school administration. During the fall and early winter sports seasons each school will use the time to create their positive environment cheering sections, and prepare a creative video to submit for review. Ultimately, a winner will be selected from each league with a $1000 award presented to the student body. Find out more information here

Send us a video of your student section positively supporting your teams on game night. We are looking for videos that reflect enthusiasm and positive sportsmanship within the cheering sections. How creative can your student section be while supporting your team without disrespecting others? Here is the judging criteria.

Financial and technical support for BOTF is being provided by our friends at Friedman’s Home Improvement and is much appreciated. Questions or comments regarding BOTF should be sent to admin [at] Battle-of-the-Fans.com.
