Two Maryland Teams Earn Fair Play Award at US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup
MON, July 16, Glen Burnie, MD – Two Maryland teams won the Fair Play Award at the 2018 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup.
The Arundel Soccer Association Real Barza 14U boys and the Liverpool FCIA Western Maryland 18U boys each won the sportsmanship award for their respective age group.
The award is presented to the team whose players, parents and coaches demonstrated the best sportsmanship and respect for the game throughout the tournament.
“A Fair Play award (based on an aggregate behavior and cooperation score throughout the tournament) will be presented to a team in each age group and gender. Both teams are evaluated by the referee crew assigned to each match,” US Youth Soccer’s National Presidents Cup Team Information Guide states.
The US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup is designed for those teams seeking additional challenges to play against teams of similar abilities for a national title. The cup provides a progressive, competitive experience to teams that might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a series of unique experiences highlighting competition, camaraderie and community from the state to regional to national levels of US Youth Soccer.
