Coach of the Year Nomination

Each Coaching Committee Regional Representative will send out a letter by October 15 th to each National State Association and applicable National/Regional League requesting that they present their Coach of the Year nomination no later than April 15 th each seasonal year. The nomination should include a letter, detailed background, and the candidate’s resume.

The Coaching Committee representative, along with the Regional Executive Committee, will select the Coach of the Year for each Region. The Coaching Committee Chairman will, in turn, submit the name of the selected candidates to the USASA Administrator. The USASA Administrator will send written notification to the successful candidates to arrange their trip accommodations to the Mid-Year Meeting and copy their affiliate member.

The Coaching Committee members will then select the National Coach of the Year for USASA, from among the Regional Coaches of the Year. The National Coach of the Year will be announced at the USASA Mid-Year Meeting.
