The National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS) and AIG are proud to present the STRIVE Award for Organization of the Year. This award recognizes organizations that embrace a "kids first" approach, evidenced by their implementation of recognized best practices and policies that protect kids and promote safety within their organization.
Prior annual awards recognize coaches, administrators, officials and volunteers - from hometown communities throughout the United States - who have demonstrated a heartfelt passion, an enthusiastic commitment and a contagious spirit to help kids succeed in youth sports. Through their actions and professionalism, they demonstrate to young people that Sports Teach Respect, Initiative, Values and Excellence.
