Chantilly HS Athletic Hall of Fame
To recognize and honor all of those Chantilly HS athletes, coaches, administrators, and supporters who have excelled in their respective fields. These teams and individuals will have brought honor, positive recognition, or in some way bettered the CHS athletic department on and off the field, court, or event.
Open to all graduated athletes beginning five years after leaving Chantilly in good standing, excluding special circumstance as voted on by Board. Athletes must have competed and excelled at the varsity level in a VHSL sanctioned sport. Factors that can be taken into account for athletes include but are not limited to:
- All- Met
- All- Region, District, Conference
- Individual school records set
- Impact of team and/or community during their era
Membership is also open for coaches (Head and Assistant), contributors, and administrators who performed with distinction and/or made significant contributions for improving the Chantilly’s athletic community. They would be eligible five years after retiring from the sport in which they are nominated.
A candidate may be nominated for HOF membership by any member of the community. The only nominations to be considered will be submitted on the nomination form prescribed for that purpose only and made available to the public. The forms, once received, will be kept confidential, shared only with the HOF board members. Information relating to a nominee’s statistics must be supported by independent documentation.
Once presented as an eligible nominee, a candidate who is not elected that year will be automatically reconsidered annually for a time period of five years, after which time a new nomination would need to be submitted.
