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 10 college teams in the platinum category will be formally acknowledged at the College Coaches Awards Reception on January 18 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Independence Ballroom in conjunction with the 2018 United Soccer Coaches Convention. The seven high school teams receiving platinum distinction will be honored at the High School Coaches Breakfast on January 20 at Philadelphia Marriott Downtown Liberty Ballroom.
United Soccer Coaches will announce additional high school Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award winners for the 2017-18 school year at the conclusion of the Winter and Spring seasons.
