Every year since 1999, the City of Yorba Linda has honored exceptional athletic accomplishments by individual athletes or sports teams in Yorba Linda. Honorees are commemorated through an induction ceremony and reception at the Athletic Achievement Recognition Wall of Fame, located at the Thomas Lasorda Jr. Field House. The Wall of Fame program exists to not only honor the achievements of local individual athletes or sports teams, but also to highlight outstanding contributions by athletic organizations serving Yorba Linda. Currently, the city is accepting nominations for the 2020 Wall of Fame induction.
Think you know of an individual, team or organization that deserves to be honored on the Wall of Fame? Here are the criteria to be nominated. Individual nominees must have been a Yorba Linda resident when their accomplishment was completed and have lived in the city for a minimum of three years. Additionally, the individual must have been a positive role model in the community. Team nominations are considered so long as the membership of the team was comprised of at least 60 percent Yorba Linda residents, and the team represented a public or private school or a local non-profit sports organization within the city. Lastly, the accomplishments must have been completed prior to the submittal deadline.
Nominations are being accepted now through Friday, March 5, 2021, at 5 p.m. For more information, visit https://www.yorbalindaca.gov/728/Wall-of-Fame/.
