Captain of the Month

Each month CORTA will spotlight one of our finest Adult League Captains from your nominations. Our Captains are the best at what they do. Their accomplishments and service have earned the respect of their peers on and off the court. These outstanding individuals are admired for their leadership, sportsmanship and community involvement. Winners are given recognition on the CORTA website as well as a gift from CORTA.

To be eligible for "Captain of the Month", your nominee must have served as captain during this calendar year and may only be "Captain of the Month" once a year. Do you have a deserving captain that you would like to nominate? Say "thank you" to your captain by nominating them
