Motivational Trophy for Player Reward & Development and Soccer Patches

A creative way to acknowledge your players for specific achievements is to honor them with a motivational trophy.  The motivational trophy is designed to be a rotating trophy that is given to one child a week for their special achievement.  The trophy is returned the following week to be given to another child to receive.  Click here for more information - Motivational Trophy List, Customized Trophy Selection

Another idea for player reward and development are "Soccer Patches".  Award a patch to each child for special achievements.
