Girls Travel Player of the Month Winners

I asked our girls travel coaches to nominate one of their players to receive a "Player of the Month" award. I tasked the coaches with nominating a player based on their attitude, dedication, leadership and performance at practice and during games. This award will be handed out 3 times each season, in April, May and June during our spring season and then in August, September and October during our fall season. We will award a "Player of the Month" to one player in each game model, so one 7v7 winner, one 9v9 winner and one 11v11 winner. 

     The girls travel coaches submitted their nominations to me at the end of last week and I spent Tuesday and Thursday evening this week traveling around to three different practices in order to hand out the first awards. I met with the teams of the player that had been chosen and explained this is something we'll be doing monthly and gave them a brief description of what they will win if they are selected. I have ordered a "Player of the Month" patch that they will get to keep and iron or sew onto their HYS Bag. I have also ordered a "Player of the Month" arm band that they get to keep for the entire month after they are selected and wear whenever and wherever they want, our 11v11 winner promised to wear it to school! The teams I met with gave me some other suggestions that I will be integrating as we get this program off the ground and fully implemented. 

Now for our Girls Travel April Player of the Month winners, Our 7v7 Player of the Month is... Farrah Kuntz! Farrah plays for our U9 Cyclones. Her coaches described her as tenacious, hard working and coachable. They also noted she has scored 3 goals and also been doing a wonderful job in goal for her team. Congratulations Farrah!

Our 9v9 Player of the Month is... Ayla Verner! Ayla plays for our U11 Storm. Her coach said Ayla has embraced learning a new position this season and has been aggressive and fearless in learning that new position. Ayla performed well in the month of April and is totally deserving of this award. Congratulations Ayla! 

Our 11v11 Player of the Month is...Hattie Stanton! Hattie players for our U13 Hurricanes. Her coach said Hattie has embraced a leadership role on Hurricanes this year, helping her younger teammates and always leading by example. Hattie is also always smiling and having fun and has performed excellent in Hurricanes games so far.
