KANSAS CITY, Mo. (July 29, 2022) – United Soccer Coaches announced on Friday the Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award recipients for high school programs competing in the winter and spring seasons. Today’s awards recognize a total of 45 teams across the country for exhibiting fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game.

Eight high school boys and girls teams received the United Soccer Coaches Platinum Team Ethics Award for completing the entire 2021-22 winter or spring seasons without receiving either a yellow or red card.

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 and coaches divided by the team’s total number of games played.
