The deadline to nominate a coach for the Responsible Coaching Award has been extended to Friday, December 7, 2007. Please remember to take a few minutes to write a short 150 word nomination for a worthy coach.
Liberty Mutual will be awarding 50 Responsible Coaching Awards which recognize youth soccer coaches demonstrating responsibility, integrity and excellence both on and off the field. Responsible coaches from each state will be honored for their volunteerism, dedication and responsibility to the game through the Responsible Sports program. Recreational and Competitive coaches are eligible.
Coaches, parents, administrators and volunteers are encouraged to nominate Responsible Coaches in their communities. The deadline for nominations is December 7, 2007. Each state winner will receive a $500 cash donation for their organization, as well as special recognition on ResponsibleSports.com and USYouthSoccer.org.
US Youth Soccer has partnered with Liberty Mutual Insurance Company to promote Responsible Sports™, a program dedicated to celebrating youth coaches around the country. The youth soccer family - coaches, parents, administrators and volunteers - are encouraged to visit ResponsibleSports.com, where they will find coaching resources, helpful tips for parents, advice from experts and community spaces to share ideas and opinions. Coaches and parents can both take a short online tutorial to become recognized as a Responsible Coach or Responsible Sports Parent.
