The Board of Directors is proud to announce that Midland Area Youth Soccer has awarded the 2016 U16 Girls Coaches Sportsmanship Award to Coach Robert Russell of SYS.
Good sportsmanship is when teammates, opponents, coaches, and officials treat each other with respect. Kids learn the basics of sportsmanship from the adults in their lives, especially their parents and their coaches. Kids who see adults behaving in a sportsmanlike way come to understand that the real winners in sports are those who know how to persevere and to behave with dignity — whether they win or lose a game.
Coach Russell has been a with us for many years and we are grateful for his dedication to SYS and its members. We want offer our sincere congratulations to Coach Russell for this well-deserved honor.
