About Of The Year Awards

Washington Youth Soccer would like to recognize outstanding members of our soccer community who go above and beyond to enrich the lives of the youth of Washington State through the sport of soccer. If you would like to nominate a member of Washington's youth soccer community for an 'Of the Year' award, please find the corresponding nomination form below and submit it before the deadlines provided.

The Of the Year Awards are Washington Youth Soccer’s annual awards to recognize outstanding individuals in the following categories: Administrator, Boys Competitive Coach, Boys Recreation Coach and Girls Competitive Coach

Individuals are nominated at the local level in each state, with these state winners advancing to regional consideration; regional winners will comprise the ballot for national honors, which will be selected by the US Youth Soccer Board of Directors.
