Division I Award Nominations

*New Regional Awards Changes for 2015*

  • The All-Region Teams and All-Region ballots will no longer have positional requirements. Coaches will be able to vote for the 14 most deserving athletes that are not their own. The regional committee will review the votes and name the 14 members All-Region team.

  • Athletes named to the All-Region team will not automatically be named All-American Honorable Mention if they are not named an All-American. All athletes named as All-Region or All-Region Honorable Mention, must have a video submitted in order to considered for All-American Honorable Mention.

  • The All-American videos requirements are being changed and shortened. Videos will now consist of only two segments. The first segment is the 2-minute highlight video featuring numerous clips throughout the season. The second segment is one 3-minute continual footage segment from a single match. Coaches may also include an informational card before both segments that highlights impressive stats or accomplishments from the season.
