The most prestigious award in the WYSL is the Double Goal Coach Award.  This Award is given to the coaches of teams who win their division and also win the Sportsmanship Award.  Honorable Mention Awards are given to coaches whose teams win their division and ranked 2nd in Sportsmanship.

The WYSL woul like to congratulate you on your team’s success last season-you were the only 19 teams out of more than 570 that earned these Awards in the Spring 2009 season.  The leadership that the coaches and managers have provided was critical to your team’s successes.  To recognize your unique achievement, the WYSL will post your names on the WYSL website page "Double-Goal Coach Award - Spring 2009" and present to you the book Positive Coaching in a Nutshell by Jim Thompson, the founder of the Positive Coaching Alliance.

We applaud your efforts and wish you continuing success in your soccer future.
