Vince Foti Sportsmanship Award

One of the more special aspects about The I88 Challenge Youth Soccer Tournament is the Vince Foti Sportsmanship Award. Introduced in the third year of this event, this Award has become a big hit with players and coaches alike. Vince is a former coach within the Oneonta Soccer Club who always stressed the importance of sportsmanship. He is a man who is dedicated to the development of soccer in our community. He believes that a true player isn’t the one who ends up on the front page of the paper, but one who lifts their team up.

Following each game a commemorative pin is awarded to a player on the opposing team who exhibited sportsmanship and team play. This opposing player is selected by the team itself. The hope is that sportsmanship and fair play is discussed and encouraged following each game. Players learn that it’s not just about their ability, but about sportsmanship and fair play.
