Nominations can be submitted by coaches, commissioners, parents, volunteers, and even other players.
Nomination forms will be available as a link on this website starting January 1, 2018. Forms must be filled out and mailed into the office by August 1, 2018. Nominees will be chosen and notified by mid-August. Nominees will be submitted for the National Athlete of the Year by late August 2018.
