The Berkeley Athletic Hall of Fame has been established to provide a means to recognize the efforts and achievements of various athletes, coaches and contributors to Berkeley Preparatory School’s athletic program while reinforcing a sense of history and tradition. The Hall of Fame honors those who, by outstanding achievement in athletics or service to BPS athletics, have made lasting contributions to the school.
A nomination committee, headed by the Athletic Director and comprised of long-standing members of the Berkeley coaching staff, will, to the best of their ability, verify athletic records and narrow down the pool of nominees for the selection committee. The Headmaster will approve the nomination list before it goes to the selection committee. The selection committee, headed by the Athletic Director and our Director of Alumni Relations, will choose inductees each year.
