Player of the Month

Each month, we will be recognizing one male and one female Kansas Youth Soccer Player of the Month, whose accomplishments on and off the field stick out among the rest.
The players who are selected will represent a balance of athletic achievement, sportsmanship and citizenship.

Examples of these athletes' characteristics include:
- Impactful or notable in-game performance
- Displays good sportsmanship and the promotion of teamwork
- Community service
- Superior academic achievement
- Overcoming personal obstacles
While great performances in the game of soccer are appreciated, it's important to note that accomplishments off the field are valued just as much as those achieved on the field.
