Cannon School soccer teams get academic awards

CONCORD Cannon School is one of only 47 schools nationwide to receive the High School Team Academic Award for both the girls and boys soccer programs from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. This is the third year both teams received the award.
A total of 371 high school teams (139 boys’ and 232 girls’) throughout the United States have earned the award for exemplary performance in the classroom as a team during 2012-13. To qualify, the high school team must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 for the entire academic year. The team GPA is determined by adding all players GPAs, then dividing by the number of players.
“Once again, our boys’ and girls’ teams have shown that they are excellent students in the classroom, and I might add that many are multi-sport athletes,” says Matt Barlow, head coach of the boys’ and girls’ teams. “I appreciate their efforts both on and off the field and am proud of both teams for receiving this accolade for the third year in a row.”
Founded in 1941, the mission of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America is to develop and deliver educational programming and events that inspire members to improve and to enhance their involvement in soccer. The association has a responsibility to activate a network of coaches and others involved in the sport that will take responsibility for advancing soccer in the greater community.
