United Soccer Coaches has announced the 2018 Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award recipients for high school and college soccer programs competing in the fall season. These awards recognizes a total of 167 teams across the country for exhibiting fair play, sporting behavior and adherence to the laws of the game.
The Team Ethics and Sportsmanship Award is presented 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.
The Luther College women's soccer team was one of 56 teams recognized as a Silver Award winner.
