We asked you to tell us why your coach is a superstar, and

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

It's a well known fact, teams grow stronger together when it's led by a great coach. Thanks to their endless passion and commitment, we see our athletes gaining self-esteem, learning to stand for each other and ultimately becoming better humans. It matters to celebrate them, a simple act of kindness goes a long way. So, we asked you to nominate your coach and tell us what makes them stand out, and... you didn't disappoint! We received hundreds of stories about how your coach has changed your team for the good and why they are deserving to be FlipGive's Coach of the Year.

She keeps the girls organized, centered and competing at their finest level.She also is compassionate feelings/accomplishments and failures."

Coach Bryce F.

"I have never seen Coach Bryce without a smile on his face.The dude radiates with positivity! He is always happy, smiling, laughing, and interacting with our youth in the most positive and uplifting ways.It is obvious he enjoys what he does, as he has been doing it for many years for both boys and girls soccer. He not only provides a positive learning environment, but the kids truly listen and learn from him. He is well respected from the itty-bitty 3 year olds, on up to the opinionated teenagers!He coached a girls travel team for many years, and as 8th graders this year, several of them made varsity at their respective high schools and the rest are on the JV squads. He helped those young ladies soak in and truly understand the game. Him and his wife are always organizing fundraisers and setting up donations for other families who may be in need within our community.He has 5 children of his own (whom all play soccer) and you would think he would be exhausted and want to be left alone, but he is always on the go, mostly found on a soccer field! Just recently their house caught fire, and coach Bryce was at practice the very next day, despite his own loss, having a smile on his face still doing what he does best - toting in a wagon full of soccer balls, cones, and pennies- getting ready to coach!  Coach Bryce is an amazing role model for our youth and we are extremely lucky to have him and his wife in our community- because they are AWESOME!"

 

Congratulations to our three FlipGive Coaches of the Year for winning $1,000!
