The Sac-Joaquin Section will select three male coaches and three female coaches for recognition as Sac-Joaquin Section Model Coaches. Each league will form its own selection committee, as each league will submit one male coach and one female coach nomination to the Section office to be reviewed by the Model Coach Selection Committee. The selection committee for this award is seeking coaching candidates who serve as positive role models, display leadership within the school and community, show character and live by the highest ethical standards. The selection committee will judge each candidate on the concept of sportsmanship and the six core ethical values: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Good Citizenship.
