Criteria for Selection to the AYSO Hall of Fame
AYSO has many ways in which persons who make a significant contribution to the organization at a local level are recognized and commended. The Hall of Fame is unique. Accordingly, selection to the AYSO Hall of Fame shall be focused on individuals who have impacted or benefited AYSO and its members on a national basis. There shall be three categories for candidacy:
An individual must have made an exceptional contribution at or near the inception of our organization (circa 1964 – 1970) or forged into new territory to bring AYSO beyond its original boundaries.
A Promoter of AYSO dedicated to the organization as a volunteer in any discipline, whose deeds and words made a truly extraordinary contribution to AYSO which should inspire AYSO’s youth and preserve its legacy; or a Player in AYSO for at least two seasons who achieved enormous distinction by the level of his or her contribution to the sport of soccer and made a long-term impact on AYSO, with additional consideration given to integrity, sportsmanship and character.
An individual must have made a major, sustained impact that strengthened the organization, or enabled AYSO to achieve significant growth, a material increase in the potency of its programs or a greatly heightened reputation.
Note: Current AYSO Executive Members and AYSO National Office staff will not be eligible to be nominated.
