New changes to the Annual Awards program that will see some winners rewarded with educational scholarships!
The Board of Directors of the Missouri Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) is pleased to announce a change in the Annual Awards Program in the state. US Youth Soccer’s (USYS) Annual Awards program honors individuals who have dedicated a significant amount of time to growing the game.
To motivate more and better participation in the program within Missouri, the Board of Directors is announcing changes to the state program. A nomination resulting in a person being an award recipient at the district level leads to a $50 contribution by Missouri Youth Soccer to the soccer charity of the nominator’s choice. A nomination resulting in a state award leads to a $100 contribution by MYSA to the soccer charity of the nominator’s choice.
Award recipients for many of our awards (see below) will also receive a $500 educational scholarship.
MYSA staff liaisons have been appointed for each award to assist in gathering nominations.
Award recipients for the majority of our state awards will be entered into the USYS Midwest Region award program. Region award recipients will be entered into the national USYS program.
Award nominations must be submitted on the approved forms by August 31, 2021. Below is a list of awards and a link to the nominee forms. Winners must be USYS/MYSA registered players and/or coaches.
