Cal North Hall of Fame

The purpose of the Cal North Hall of Fame is to honor those individuals who have made outstanding contributions to youth soccer as a player, coach, referee, administrator or other youth soccer-related activities.

To be eligible for nomination and induction into the Cal North Hall of Fame, an individual must have a minimum of fifteen years in service to youth soccer, ten of which must be under the auspices of Cal North.  A nominee currently serving on the Cal North Board of Directors is not eligible.

To be eligible for nomination and induction into the Cal North Players Hall of Fame the player nominee must have distinguished him or her self with a high standard of play under the guidance and auspices of Cal North, US Youth Soccer or USSF.  This includes competition at the State Association level as a member of a team representing Cal North, US Youth Soccer or USSF.  Players shall be eligible for nomination beginning five years after completing their eligibility to play in youth soccer.

Only Cal North affiliated leagues or a member of the Cal North Board of Directors may initiate a Hall of Fame Nomination.  The nominator must submit the Hall of Fame Nomination form and the nominee’s resume by the nomination deadline.  The resume should be type-written, concise and reflect a complete chronology of the nominee’s contributions and achievements with an emphasis on his/her accomplishments in Cal North.  Completed nomination forms and resumes shall be received in the Cal North office by October 1st.

A maximum of two individuals and two players each year may be inducted to the Hall of Fame.  If it is felt that none of the nominees proposed meet the qualifications and standards of Cal North, none will be selected for induction.

The induction of newly installed Hall of Fame members will take place at the Cal North Hall of Fame Dinner during the annual Soccer Expo.
