Padres Coach of the Year Award Contest

To honor the positive role high school coaches play in the lives of our high school student athletes, the San Diego Padres created the Padres Coach of the Year award, presented by Fox Sports San Diego. Each week, we will honor one local high school baseball or softball Coach of the Week for making a positive impact on the lives of his or her players on and off the field as a coach, mentor and role model.

At the end of the eight-week program, one of the eight weekly honorees will be named the Padres High School Coach of the Year. Each Coach of the Week will receive a $1,000 donation to support his or her program while the Coach of the Year will receive a $5,000 donation. The first Coach of the Week will be selected on April 8 and the program will culminate on June 5 with the Coach of the Year Award presentation on the field at Petco Park. 

Submit your nomination for a coach who has made a positive impact on the lives of his or her players both on and off the field as a coach, mentor and role model.
