Local Subway restaurants are currently accepting nominations for the company's Standout Coach program.
The award recognizes volunteer coaches in youth sports "who excel in leadership, sportsmanship, community spirit and are dedicated to health and fitness," reads a release from the company.
“Often youth sports is a child’s first experience with organized sports. Coaches are the foundation of youth sports in our community and most volunteer their time to help our children learn important skills they carry through their entire lives,” said Chuck Reedy, a retired coach and owner of six Subway shops in South Carolina. “We invite team representatives to tell us how their coach creates a positive experience, so we can recognize the crucial role they play in youth sports.”
Nominations will be accepted through May 17 online at www.yourstandoutcoach.com. The top volunteer coaches will be selected by a committee of local Subway franchisees and announced in June.
One grand prize winner will be named the 2017 Subway Standout Coach and receive $100 Subway card and Subway catered team meal. Four runner-up recipients will receive $50 Subway cards, and the first 50 nominees will receive $25 Subway cards.
