The Indiana Soccer Association successfully concluded this past weekend the 2018 Workshops, AGM, Awards Gala and Induction of the Indiana Soccer Hall of Fame Class of 2018 at the Renaissance North Hotel.
Nearly 100 coaches and administrators attended this year’s weekend in which the association’s staff and partners delivered educational and informational presentations during the day. For the reception and Awards Gala, nearly 400 people were part of the dinner to celebrate Indiana Soccer excellence in which the association recognized people in 21 categories.
“Every year we celebrate leaders throughout the state of Indiana whose dedication and passion for soccer is unparalleled,” said Dave Guthrie, Executive Director of Indiana Soccer. “We are grateful for each individual’s commitment to enhance the lives of children in their communities throughout the state of Indiana for the past 40 years.”
Along with the Awards Gala, Indiana Soccer hosted the Hall of Fame Reception, Indiana Soccer Board Meeting and the Indiana Soccer Foundation’s Meeting / Silent Auction.
