LIJSL to honor spring winners on Oct. 30
The Long Island Junior Soccer League will honor its Sportsmanship winners from the spring season at the Huntington Hilton in Melville, N.Y. on Tuesday, Oct. 30.
The awards will be presented as follows:
* 6-7 p.m. -- Boys and girls, Under-9 and U-10
* 7-8 p.m. -- Boys and girls, U-11 and U-12
* 8-9 p.m. -- Boys and girls, U-13 and U-14
* 9-10 p.m. -- Boys and girls, U-15 through U-19
Every winning team will receive a LIJSL Sportsmanship Patch that players will wear on their shirt sleeves.
After every game, the referee grades each team from zero to 10 on the cooperation of players, cooperation of coaches, cooperation of spectators, overall game conduct and player appearance (from zero to five). The rating used to be done through rosters sent to the LIJSL office in Ronkonkoma but now it is posted online after every game.
