United Soccer Coaches Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award

Congratulations to seven of our teams who recently received the United Soccer Coaches High School Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award for the Fall 2022. In total 135 teams from across the Nation received either the Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze version of the High School Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award, which recognizes teams that exhibit fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game, as reflected by the number of yellow caution cards or red ejection cards they are shown by referees throughout the season based on the number of cards accumulated divided by the number of games played (i.e., 5 cards divided by 20 games played is 0.25 or 25%, which qualifies for a Silver Award).
