ASC Annual Award Winners

ASC Membership,

You've voted and the results are in! We couldn't be more proud of our 2019-2020 ASC Annual Award Winners:

 - ASC Coach of the Year: Eric "Mitch" Mitchell
 - ASC Volunteer of the Year: Erin Porter

Please join us in congratulating these amazing individuals. Both will be receiving a gift from ASC to commensurate their hard-work and selfless dedication this past year. A brief summary is included below for your reading pleasure. 

This year’s ASC Coach of the Year is Eric “Mitch” Mitchell. Congratulations Coach Mitch!

Mitch has been coaching with Annapolis Soccer Club for the past 12 years! Most recently, he can be found passionately leading and positively encouraging his son Mason's team. He has been around the organization for quite some time (coaching every Fall and Spring, missing just one Futsal season) and was looking forward to leading his team in the AAYSA county league this spring. Coach Mitch also serves as an assistant coach for Maryland Rush where his daughters, Grace and Maddie, both participate.

Mitch’s favorite part about ASC is "seeing the kids grow and progress over the year [it] is so wonderful to see.  He added "I played soccer at different levels for 30 years so I definitely have a passion for the sport, but I got started consistently coaching for my own children. That part is truthfully self serving; however, it is very rewarding to have a positive impact on so many other kids. I love walking around town and seeing a teenager I coached years ago and have them yell, "Hi, Coach Mitch!". The exercise and staying active is another plus.”

Our 2020 ASC Volunteer of the Year is Erin Porter. Congratulations Coach Erin! 

Here is a photo of Coach Erin delivering halftime adjustments to her ASC "Hissing Cockroaches” Girls 2009 team. Yes, we have been told that the team name strikes fear in the eyes of the opponent. 

Erin is a newbie in terms of tenure with the club (compared to Coach Mitch and others), however, her impact, volunteerism, and energy have made a lifetime of difference for those that she coaches and the club overall. If you’ve volunteered during our ASC Field Preparation Days or ASC County Equipment Handout Days, you’d be sure to have run into Erin organizing equipment and bringing order to the storage sheds. She has been coaching for the past 2 years and is involved every season, usually with more than one team!

Coach Erin says her favorite part about ASC is “is watching players master new skills”.  “I volunteer because I love the game and I had caring adults that taught me the game so that my parents didn’t have to lol”. The parents on Coach Erin’s team added that “Erin Porter is very deserving of the recognition! She was a phenomenal coach!”. 

Thank you to our AMAZING ASC Award Winners! Congratulations to all the coaches and volunteers that were nominated and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
