Polk State soccer received another postseason honor today as United Soccer Coaches announced that the Eagles earned a Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award at the Bronze Level.
"As a program, we strive to compete at a high level while putting sportsmanship and our team character first and maintaining the integrity of the sport," said Head Coach Steve Linamen.
The award is given to United Soccer Coaches members at four levels. Teams honored at the platinum level went an entire season without a player or coach receiving a yellow card or red card. Teams honored at the gold (1-10%), silver (11-30%) and bronze (31-50%) levels are based on a percentage calculated by the total number of cards received by players/coaches divided by the team's total number of games played.
Founded in 1941, United Soccer Coaches is the trusted and unifying voice, advocate and partner for coaches at all levels of the game. It is the largest community for soccer coaches in the world.
