Ron Foxcroft receives congratulations from PM Justin Trudeau for his Gold Whistle Award ~ Aug 2 2016
In San Antonio Texas, on Tuesday August 2nd, as the only Canadian basketball referee in the NCAA, Mr. Foxcroft was awarded the Golden Whistle Award by the US-based National Association of Sports Officials (NASO). “A primary determinant in awarding anyone NASO’s Gold Whistle Award is this: The recipient has to have a long and meaningful history of ‘shining a positive light’ on officiating. Further, any recipient must be someone who is held with some reverence within the officiating community of which he is a part. Ron Foxcroft was an easy choice, frankly.” says Barry Mano, NASO President.
