2017 AMSA Coaches of the Year
Submitted By Ken Sherk on Friday, September 29, 2017
We are pleased to announce the 2017 AMSA Coaches of the Year.
Our Local Coach of the Year is Jason Querin from the Trimite (U8) program.
Our Travel Coach of the Year is Mark Hall from the U14 Girls team.

Jason demonstrated the coaching virtues of patience and understanding with his young softball players to create a fun learning environment. Jason also gave his time to help with setup and cleanup for the Trimite practices each Saturday.

Mark was new to AMSA this year although he brought plenty of prior experience from coaching his own kids through minor sports. He led our U14 Girls Travel team to a terrific season where they exceeded even their own expectations in both development and success on the field. Mark's patience and persistence brought out the best in his players and helped to build a true team.

We only have two awards but we have a great group of coaches throughout our organization.  We also want to recognize other coaches that were nominated by their teams.
John Carpenter - U14 Local
Carolyn Redfern - U18 Girls Travel
Chris Oakley - U12 Boys Travel
Each of these coaches has demonstrated their love for the game by sharing it with their players over several seasons.  Thanks to each of you for giving your time and energy to improve our association.
