OYSC Manager and FLSL Board Member Pete Phillips was recently named District VI Volunteer of the Year.

Pete has been volunteering in youth soccer for Cal North since 1988 when he became a coach for his kids, and has coached at the recreational, select and competitive levels. Once his kids aged out, he started over with a U6 team and today, 30 years later, he is STILL coaching a team.

He was also involved with his local club, Orangevale Youth Soccer Club, as a Referee Coordinator and Club Manager, a position he retains today. In addition, he was a Cal North District 6 Metro League Age Group Coordinator, then advanced to Cal North District 6 League Administrator.

Pete has been involved heavily in the soccer community, holding multiple positions over multiple decades. He has worked tirelessly both on and off the field promoting soccer, encouraging kids to play and providing a safe fun environment for them in which to do it. He is the epitome of what all administrators look for in a volunteer.
