US Lacrosse is now accepting nominations for its 2020 Youth Awards, recognizing outstanding contributors to youth lacrosse from around the country.

Online submissions for the awards are being accepted through June 1, 2020.

US Lacrosse understands that the dedication of individuals throughout the nation serves as the driving force in the successful growth of youth lacrosse, and seeks to nationally recognize some of these deserving individuals with this awards program.

The Youth Awards are given in nine different categories, recognizing coaches, officials, administrators, and other contributors.

A full explanation of each award is available online

Nominators are asked to include two recommendation letters of support in addition to the online submission. These letters should feature information or stories reflecting the nominee’s particular strengths, outstanding qualities as a coach or administrator, his or her contributions to the game, and how he or she has supported the US Lacrosse vision. 

These letters are a vitally important part of the nomination process and receive the highest consideration in determining the eventual winners. 

US Lacrosse is fully aware that COVID-19 precautions may force the cancellation of some spring seasons, however, your coaches, officials and administrators are still eligible. Many of these individuals have been committed to your program for years, and we invite you to still take time to recognize these valuable contributors.
