The Volunteer of the Year Award may be presented to an individual who in the same year has also been presented with a recognition award in one of the player, coach, official or volunteer categories.

Nominations, including the Volunteer of the Year Award will be reviewed and winner selected by the SSA’s Awards and Recognition Committee. SSA may add names to the list of nominations, although preference will be given to nominations submitted by the soccer community.

Volunteer recognition is a vital part of the ongoing programs and activities of the SSA. The soccer community is asked to take the time to think of individuals who have made outstanding contributions to soccer in Saskatchewan so that they can be recognized by the SSA and its membership.

For consideration, nominations must include:
- Nomination Form via survey monkey, or paper submission
