Coach Award presented by TeamSnap

Women’s Soccer United and TeamSnap Community Coach Award heads to USA.

WSU’s Community Coach Award Presented by TeamSnap (USA edition).

The WSU Community Coach Award Presented by TeamSnap is focusing on the USA for its next search to award coaches involved in women and girl’s soccer, either at independent clubs or in schools/universities.

After a successful search to award an outstanding coach in the UK & Ireland, Women’s Soccer United and TeamSnap (whose online and mobile apps take sports organization and communication into the 21st century), are turning their attention to the USA to provide those involved in women and girls’ soccer the opportunity for global recognition… and the chance to win an ipad mini.

The competition is searching for communities to nominate coaches who deserve to be awarded and recognised for the work they do for the women’s game.

Our search began in the UK and Ireland where Chris Berry, manager of AFC Boscombe U-11’s, based in Boscombe, Bournemouth, England, was awarded for his outstanding contribution and the positive impact he has had on the club and players – read more about Chris Berry’s win here (

Sharing a similar passion, Women’s Soccer United and TeamSnap form the perfect partnership to pursue the goal of providing recognition to the unsung heroes of coaches involved in female soccer.

“We believe that coaches have an amazing impact on kids’ lives,” says Ken McDonald, TeamSnap’s chief growth officer.

“Our motivation is to allow coaches to spend time working with these young athletes, helping them develop lifelong skills through sport, not wasting time with logistics. That’s why the TeamSnap app was created.”

“For our inaugural award in the UK and Ireland, it was truly inspiring to read about the amazing work that individuals do to make it possible for girls to play soccer, I am looking forward to hearing and learning more about the extraordinary coaches in the USA and the work they provide for the benefit and enjoyment of players of every ability,” said Gina West, Founder of Women’s Soccer United.

“We believe coaches deserve to be recognised and awarded for their efforts, which is why, together with TeamSnap, we launched our Community Coach Award. ”

The Community Coach award is designed to help raise awareness of the endless hours that goes into coaching by promoting the great work and achievements of coaches and trainers and sharing them with our global audience.

As well as winning an ipad mini courtesy of TeamSnap, the winning coach will be promoted on the immensely popular WSU website and on social media.

The nominations are now open on and will close on 31 March 2017. The WSU team will review the nominations and select a deserving winner.
