Nominate Your Coach for an Award!
The WSCCA takes pride in bestowing several awards on our deserving coaches each year at the WSCCA Coaches Conference. We look to honor and celebrate the varied achievements of the outstanding women and men in our organization.
The WSCCA awards committee does not necessarily give out all awards every year. The number of awards depends on the nominations and pool of candidates. Award winners must be members of the WSCCA (with the exception of the administrators categories). The following is the comprehensive list of awards:
Rec Coach of the Year
Rec Assistant Coach of the Year
Rec Rising Star Coach of the Year (a coach in their first three years of coaching)
Rec Program of the Year
Rec Administrator of the Year
High School/Middle School/JH Coach of the Year
High School/Middle School/JH Assistant Coach of the Year
High School/Middle School/JH Rising Star Coach of the Year (a coach in their first three years of coaching)
High School/Middle School/JH Program of the Year
High School/Middle School/JH Athletic Director of the Year
WSCCA Member of the Year
Hall of Fame Coach
Hall of Fame Contributor
Hall of Fame Program
Nominations are collected from until March 24th via the below online form. Anyone with knowledge of the candidate can nominate--cheerleaders, parents, other coaches, etc. After the closing of online nominations, the WSCCA board will vote on finalists. Next, the Award Committee Chair aggregates the votes into a packet for the Award Committee. The Awards Committee then decides on the award winners based on the overall number of nominations, the caliber of the nomination descriptions, and experience in the WSCCA. If needed, supplementary information and interviews will be requested to gain additional insight.
The Awards Committee is made up of past award winners who are also members of the WSCCA Board of Directors. Those on the committee that have a personal connection to nominees or are nominated themselves must recuse themselves from discussion of that category.
Award winners are announced at our annual Coaches Conference June 1st.
