Award

Name

Volunteer of the Year

Mark Eglin this year created and maintained the PYSL Website. His energy is limitless, his creativity is limitless and he has built PYSL’s best way of communicating with its players and parents. This was one of PYSL’s goals based on parent comments and Mark made it happen.

Lifetime Achievement

Gil Barquerohas been contributing to Petaluma’s youth soccer program for PYSL entire existence. He began by helping to introduce soccer to the Bay Area by being a founder of the San Francisco men’s leagues in the 1950’s. He then helped Petaluma become the first affiliated youth league in the North Bay in the mid 1970’s. And he has been coaching ever since. Gil is cutting back on his coaching after this year but promises to be around to help even more kids in the future.

 Recreational Coach
of the Year

Dan Shultz consistently teaches not only soccer to the girls on his team, but more importantly great lessons in teamwork, sportsmanship, perseverance, respect and self esteem. We wish the positive enthusiasm of this coach could be bottled and freely distributed.

 Competitive Coach
of the Year

In his first year as Head Coach, Randy Hartlieb helped his team achieve success and enjoyment, and was instrumental in our successful Division 3 tournament. He has an infectious caring for kids and enthusiasm in seeing the kids enjoy themselves while leading them to great gains in their skills.
