The Centre Circle Awards are Ontario Soccer’s highest level of recognition and are presented annually to deserving volunteers and organizations nominated on the basis of their outstanding contributions to the development of soccer in Ontario and Canada.

Ontario Soccer recognizes leaders annually through the Centre Circle Awards and this year, the 2022 Centre Circle Awards will be presented in-person on September 24, 2022 as a part of Ontario Soccer’s Annual Members Meeting weekend. 

The deadline for submitting Centre Circle Award nominations to Ontario Soccer has been extended to Thursday, April 28, 2022.

Now entering its second year on the Centre Circle Awards docket, is the MilkUP Future Leaders Award. Ontario Soccer has partnered with the Dairy Farmers of Ontario to deliver this Award.

This award not only recognizes young soccer leaders in each of the five regions (North, South, East, West and Central) for their outstanding contributions to their soccer community, but an education grant of $2500 is also presented along with the award to assist these youth in their educational endeavors.
