The season officially begins on Monday! The pre-season watch list was a precursor to get ready for the 2020 season. Now the rubber hits the road. Let's watch ALL these kid's hard work pay off. After coaching lacrosse for 5+ years, it is evident at practice who is working hard on their own and who is not.
With the season going into full swing, FLlaxgirlnews and Girlslaxflorida will be accepting nominations throughout each week of the entire season for the Sunshine State Player of the Week-the deadline to submit your nomination is Sunday
The nominations will give every girl an opportunity to be possibly be highlighted on social media. Recognizing players from around the state is a great way to grow the game and let everyone know about an amazing player--possibly a player from a more unknown school who is a strong leader and makes a big impact on/for their team (who maybe didn’t get on the Watch List )--or you may nominate a player from the watch list who you saw play and they were super fun to watch and they were an integral part of their team. You can nominate a teammate or an opponent who you respect for their play & leadership. Preferrably it would be awesome to have HS Coaches to nominate your player who is deserving of an award during a week of your season and even fans can make nominations (including parents who are the biggest fans of all). ALL are welcome to submit nomiations.
BUT—PLEASE submit deserving players (& include a picture)!
The girls who are chosen as Sunshine player of the week need to be the kind of player who contributes to their team not necessarily in just stats but as a presence on the field.
When nominating a player-share WHY the player is like sunshine on their team-not bright and cheery, but a powerful and life-giving player who impacts practices & games through their hard work, attitude and actions.
The Sunshine State Player of the week will be posted every Wednesday during the 2020 season!
At the end of the high school season, the 2020 Florida Sunshine State Lax Girl of the year will be chosen from all the girls who are nominated throughout the entire season.
The final award will be voted on by an independent panel of outsiders. The more you share about the player whom you are nominating, the greater consideration that player will receive. My dream is to turn the Florida Sunshine State Lax Girl of the year award into a scholarship one day.
Can’t wait for new nominations to roll in and to see some Freshies nominated who stand out and hopefully some may be highlighted this year as Sunshine Player of the week or even of the year.
Let's keep growing and honoring the game!!
