Every season, we highlight the importance of education within our soccer community, and celebrate the success of our student athletes off the field through the SCYSL Scholar Athlete Award. Improving one’s soccer game is fun and rewarding, but of more importance is the need to have a strong academic foundation. Our league launched the Scholar Athlete Program years ago to recognize those players in our league that receive academic honors (B average or higher) during the playing season. The program is open to all SCYSL players from the kindergartner grade through high school. Players recognized as Scholar Athletes will receive a medal, certificate and a bumper sticker during a ceremony to recognize each student-athlete.
Players in grades kindergartner through twelfth are eligible for the Scholar Athlete Award. In order for eligible players to receive the award a player must receive a B average or higher on a report card during the fall season. A current report card or a completed Verification of Academic Excellence Form must be submitted. Submittals may be mailed to Tino Silva/SCYSL President
