August 29, 2018-Much of the success of the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA), since our inception in 1972, can be attributed to our great coaches and administrators.
So we are taking this opportunity to again remind you of the importance of recognizing those volunteers and coaches without whom we would not be able to provide the wonderful soccer experience our youngsters enjoy. We continue to solicit nominations for a variety of awards designed to demonstrate our appreciation for the hours of devotion these valued individuals donate to the kids.
Therefore, Eastern New York is asking that each member league and club to turn their attention inwards to their volunteers and make an effort to recognize those whose contributions have truly made a difference. New this year is the TOPSoccer Coach of the Year Award.
Eastern New York will select a person in each category who will receive not only our recognition and be our guests as they are honored at our Annual Holiday Party in December, but will also be forwarded as our candidate for additional recognition at the Regional and National level. The National winners will be honored on January 12, 2019 in Chicago.
The nominations MUST be on a specific form and completed as comprehensively as possible or they cannot be considered. These forms can be found at this online address:
