Earlier today, US Youth Soccer officially announced the 2020 Regional Award winners, and Wyoming Soccer Association is thrilled to announce that Brandi Bauer with the Cheyenne Soccer Club has been selected as the 2020 US Youth Soccer West Region Volunteer of the Year!
Brandi was nominated by Wyoming Soccer Association, along with all of our 2020 award winners who were announced earlier this year in March during our Annual General Meeting and Awards Celebration.
Brandi was nominated by Cheyenne Soccer Club for the state award and described as one of their most dedicated individuals in the club. They specifically stated that she is "present every game day for assistance with field preparation, clean up, assisting with parent questions and offers general support to the board."
Brandi has also assisted with in-person club registrations and aided in the development and planning of the first Cheyenne Soccer Club Gala in November of 2019. She consistently volunteers for anything and everything and has never asked for anything in return. She played for the club when she was younger and has given back many times over through her volunteer efforts. Cheyenne Soccer Club credits their success to the efforts of their volunteers.
In addition to her work for the club, she has also volunteered to be the team parent for her daughter's team and has followed her as she played for the Wyoming 307 Select Program and the Wyoming Olympic Development Program (ODP). She is a devoted mother, team parent and member of Cheyenne Soccer Club and Wyoming Soccer Association.
Brandi has definitely proven that she is deserving of this regional and national recognition and now will be moved on to the next level, which is the US Youth Soccer national awards. Winners will be announced and recognized at the 2021 US Youth Soccer Awards Gala, held January 14th, 2021, as part of the US Youth Soccer Workshop in partnership with the United Soccer Coaches Convention.
We wish her the best of luck, and we are so very proud of her in her selection as a regional award winner, which is a huge accomplishment in and of itself. This is the second consecutive year a member of Wyoming Soccer has won a regional award, with the selection of Brian Orr with Heart Mountain Soccer Association as the 2019 US Youth Soccer West Region Boys Competitive Coach of the Year!
