The Founders' Cup is a perpetual award honoring all the players and coaches of the 2012 Inaugural Season. 

The complete rosters of all the Inaugural Season teams are engraved on the award, including all players, coaches and team administrators from all six founding flag and tackle teams.

The Cup was handmade by Boardman Silversmiths of Wallingford, CT.  Boardman has created awards for many prestigious events such as the Kentucky Derby, Indy 500, US Open and the Calder Cup.  These craftsman also work on the Stanley Cup and make the Lombardi Super Bowl trophy for Tiffany & Co.  The Founder's Cup was a gift to the Association by founding members Alice Patton and Michael Zanolli.

Beginning with the 2013 season, the Founders' Cup will be awarded by the Association "to the team that exemplifies the highest level of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Character and Achievement each year." 

There is wide-ranging latitude for several teams to be considered.  It is not necessarily the team with the best record.  It could be the team with the best attitude or most resilient or most improved, or the team that works together best, win or lose.

Teams are nominated for the award by their Head Coach who provides a description of how the team exemplified the award's ideals throughout the season.

The Board of Directors will determine the recipient, and the winning team will be presented with the Cup at the end of the season party.  The year and name of the team and head coach will be added to the base of the trophy each season.


2013 Founders Cup Awarded to: 120 lb. Team and Coach John Dustin

2014 Founders Cup Awarded to : 105 lb. B team and Coach Bill Gallagher

2015 Founders Cup Awarded to:  Pee Wee Cheerleading Squad and Coaches Jill Demmy and Jennifer Zajac
