May 18, 2020-In 2019, Eastern New York’s TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year Jessica Lee was also celebrated as both the Regional and National TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year. But all the praise that she received would not have occurred if she had not been nominated.
So once again, the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is asking that each member league and club turn their attention inwards to their volunteers in an effort to acknowledge those whose contributions have truly made a difference. We're seeking nominations for a variety of awards to demonstrate our appreciation for the hours of devotion these valued individuals donate to our players. Nominations are also being requested for Goal of the Year and Save of the Year.
Eastern New York will select a person in each category who will receive our recognition at our Annual Party in November and will also be forwarded as our candidate for additional recognition at the Regional and National levels. The National winners will be honored at the US Youth Soccer Annual Awards Gala next January in Anaheim.
The entries MUST be on a specific form and be completed as comprehensively as possible or they cannot be considered.
The forms are all linked here.
Awards will be presented in the following categories:
Girls Travel Coach of the Year
Boys Travel Coach of the Year
Girls Recreational Coach of the Year
Boys Recreational Coach of the Year
Volunteer of the Year
Administrator of the Year
TOPSoccer Coach of the Year
TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year
Goal of the Year
Save of the Year
Nominations must be received at the Eastern New York office on or before August 31, 2020 to be considered. The address is Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association, 167 Nassau Boulevard, Garden City South, NY 11530 or the form can be e-mailed to Randy Vogt at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please take this opportunity to say thanks to your members through this great awards program!
