John Kowalski, one of the most successful and accomplished coaches in U.S. Soccer history, will be presented with the Walt Chyzowych Lifetime Achievement Award at a special ceremony in Philadelphia during the United Soccer Coaches Convention. The event will take place on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 4:00 pm in the Liberty Ballroom A&B of the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott and is sponsored by U.S. Soccer.

“It’s truly an honor for me to follow in the footsteps of so many great people who, having served the game at a high level, were recognized as Chyzowych Lifetime Achievement Award winners,” said Kowalski about the award. “For me, not only have I had the good fortune of playing with and coaching against many of the award’s previous winners, I am delighted to now be named to this distinguished list. It truly is one of the highlights of my career.”

The bronze- and silver-medal-winning players will be presented with Walt Chyzowych Distinguished Playing Career awards.
