KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Dec. 2018) – United Soccer Coaches announced on Wednesday the Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award recipients for high school and college soccer programs competing in the fall season. Today’s awards recognize a total of 167 teams across the country for exhibiting fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game.

The Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award is given to United Soccer Coaches members at four levels. Teams honored at the platinum level went an entire season without a player or coach receiving a yellow card or red card. Teams honored at the gold (1-10%), silver (11-30%) and bronze (31-50%) levels are based on a percentage calculated by the total number of cards received by players/coaches divided by the team’s total number of games played.

The seven college teams in the platinum category will be formally acknowledged at the College Coaches Awards Reception on Jan. 10 at the Chicago Marriott Marquis Great Lakes Ballroom in conjunction with the 2019 United Soccer Coaches Convention. The 12 high school teams receiving platinum distinction will be honored at the High School Coaches Breakfast on Jan. 12 in the same location.

United Soccer Coaches will announce additional high school Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award winners for the 2018-19 school year at the conclusion of the winter and spring seasons.

Founded in 1941 and based in Kansas City, Mo., United Soccer Coaches has grown into the world’s largest soccer coaches’ organization that serves members at every level of the game.

United Soccer Coaches works every day to inspire coaches and ignite their passion for the game so they pass it on to players and others in the soccer community.
