The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Awards Gala

What is the awards gala?

 

Each year individuals are recognized in various categories and represent Kansas Youth Soccer at the Midwest Regional.  If individuals are selected as Regional award winners, they represent the Midwest Region at the US Youth Soccer Awards Gala in conjunction with the US Youth Soccer Convention.  Individuals chosen at the Awards Gala become National Level winners in their respective category.  In addition to State awards, the Kansas Youth Soccer Association honors Kansas Hall of Fame Inductees.
