Senior Excellence Award

The National Soccer Coaches Association of America is pleased to offer its member coaches the opportunity to recognize on an annual basis an outstanding senior student-athlete on their team through the presentation of the High School Senior Excellence Award.

The award was created to allow NSCAA member coaches at the high school level to recognize an outstanding senior student-athlete in their program, with the intent of honoring exceptional contributions to the team while exemplifying the finest attributes of a high school student-athlete.

Selections are to be made based on the following criteria. The student-athlete must:

  • Be a high school senior
  • Have made significant contributions to the team
  • Represent the finest attributes of a team player
  • Consistently projects a positive attitude
  • Displays team leadership
  • Exemplifies the standards set forth in the NSCAA Player Code of Conduct and Ethics

The nominating coach MUST be a current NSCAA member. One player may be nominated in each respective season (boys and girls).


The process for nominations and voting varies by award.  At this time, All-America, Scholar All-America, Senior Excellence, Coach of the Year and Assistant Coach of the Year, are all managed by logging into your Personal Account on MyNSCAA and following the links to My Voting.  All other nominations can be submitted by the corresponding PDFs on this page.
