Model Coach Award
An award, honoring coaches who are positive role models within our schools and the community at-large, is being given each year. 

Each member school in the Sac-Joaquin Section is permitted to nominate one male and one female coach from its staff to its league.  The league then selects one male and one female coach who's names are then sent to the Section office for consideration.

Six of these coaches are chosen to receive a plaque and a lifetime Sac-Joaquin Section pass at an awards breakfast in April.

Community Service Program
The CIF strongly believes in the importance of community service.  This program is an opportunity for teams and athletes to assume a leadership role and give back to their communities.

The Sac-Joaquin Section will select a team for recognition as the Sac-Joaquin Section Community Service Award recipient.  Each winning team will receive a banner and cash award.

Each school may nominate one team per season to their league for consideration.  All applications should be forwarded to your league president.  Each league will form its own selection committee and submit one team nomination to the Section office.  The Community Service Award Selection Committee will review the nominations.
