Team MVP

For age groups U10 through U14, votes are collected during the season (not including grading games and U08’s) for MVP (Most Valuable Player)

For the U16’s this program is entirely optional.

U08’s are given participation medals at the end of the season.

The team MVP is determined by coaches and 1 parent voting each week on a player 3,2,1 voting system. It should be encouraged that voting be based on the players contribution to the team in the that game. It should not be based purely on scoring because defence and assists can be a major contributing factor in a teams’ success which allows other players to flourish. These factors should also be taken into account when voting.

Team Managers will need to collect MVP 3-2-1 votes from the nominated parent after each game (rotation system, like scoring) – Simply ask a parent to place votes against each player (3 being the most valuable player on the day).

As Team Manager, you will need to submit these weekly via PlayHQ (see below).

The coach will also provide their nominations and should submit these in the same fashion as the Team Manager (see below).

The highest-scoring player at the end of the season will receive the award.
