Area Volunteer Of The Year

The Manny Hirschel Award is given annually at the Section 2 SAGM to a deserving individual from each Area in Section 2. The award was named after Manny Hirschel and first given to him at SAGM in 2000 with the plan to give it out in subsequent years to other worthy members of AYSO. Manny has given many years of unselfish leadership, knowledge, commitment, and effort to the betterment of AYSO, at many levels, and to its players having safe, fun, and fair experiences. The award is intended to be given for long-term contributions at the National, Section, Area, and/or Regional level; however the winner has typically had an impact at multiple levels. Nominees are individuals who have been role models for volunteers and for players. Their actions epitomize the values and philosophy of AYSO.
