The Hall of Fame, which is overseen by the Fairfield County Sports Commission, Inc., honors newly elected Hall of Famers with an induction ceremony at the Commission’s annual Sports Night awards dinner. There are three wings in the Fairfield County Sports Hall of Fame: the Jackie Robinson professional wing, the James O’Rourke amateur wing and the J. Walter Kennedy community service wing.
As Fairfield County Sports Commission’s biggest fund raiser, Sports Night is a “celebration of sports in Fairfield County.” The highlights of the gala are the induction of the annual Hall of Fame Class, recognizing community Sports Persons of the Year, the presentation of the Chelsea Cohen Courage Award and also honoring a member of the media who has excelled at promoting local sports.
The Chelsea Cohen Fitness Academy is a unique, countywide umbrella program overseen by the Fairfield County Sports Commission. The Academy’s focus on the healthy body, health mind equation provides leadership in helping to build a generation of children leading a daily, active lifestyle.

Proper nutrition is needed for their level of activity.
