The Neil Krebs award is presented annually to a member of the Middle Years Tier 1 Championship team. The award recipient rotates between a male player one year and a female player the next. Neil Krebs was a student who played on the boys' volleyball team at Spring Valley School in SJASD. The memorial award was developed in his honour after he died as a result of an automobile/cycling accident. The award, consisting of a divisional plaque and $100 scholarship, is presented to a player who best exemplifies the characteristics that Neil displayed as an athlete, including excellent skill, sportsmanship, and team commitment.
For the 2019 volleyball season, Grade 8 Ness Middle School student and volleyball player Kaida W. was selected to receive this honourable award. The Ness Girls volleyball team won the SJAMYAA Volleyball Championship in the Tier 1 St. James-Assiniboia Middle Years Athletic Association Division Tournament.
