The Water-Oak Circle of Sports was organized in 1977 by a group of Watertown/Oakville sportsmen. The original purpose of The Organization, as stated in the Bylaws of the Water-Oak Circle of Sports, “is to honor a one-time Watertown-Oakville resident student or supporter (male or female) dedicated to the highest ideals of sportsmanship, and who has contributed to the betterment of sports regardless of race, color or creed.” To meet this end awards are listed in four categories; Gold Ring Award, Special Awards Honor Awards and Team Championship Awards.

The Requirements for being eligible for an award is listed in the By-Laws of the Water-Oak Circle of Sports, any Water-Oak Circle of Sports member may nominate a candidate, which will be voted on by the membership at a meeting held in January of each year. In recent years the Water-Oak Circle of Sports has expanded its awards by promoting and awarded scholarships to talented and deserving high school scholar-athletes going on to college. To date, we have awarded over $650,000 in scholarships.

The Circle of Sports has also undertaken a number of projects to improve Watertown’s athletic facilities. Some of these are at Watertown High School: purchase and installation of the scoreboard and press box at the football field, a sound system and chair back pads at the Robert Cook Memorial gymnasium, as well as a scoreboard at the field hockey field. Other projects include fencing & new dugouts at Deland Field.

The Water-Oak Circle of Sports would like to thank the business community and sponsors that have supported our efforts throughout the years and have contributed to making our Awards Dinner a great success each and evrey year.

We look forward to your continued support in the future.
