Through this memorial award we honor the legacy of Greg Massey, and will recognize a current Coach-Mentor who displays the endless loyalty and passion Greg gave during his time here.

Coach Greg made a huge impact on everyone involved in Buffalo Soccer for Success, especially to the hundreds of children he coached through his time with Soccer for Success. Greg joined our team in 2014 and started as a Coach-Mentor, but became so much more over the years. As we got to know Greg, we could see how passionate he was for the program, the players, their families, and the community as a whole. Greg became a site manager, a National Trainer – traveling to Washington DC to learn along side Coach-Mentors from all over the country. He was a voice for the program, attending community fairs to promote the program, and even did a radio segment with us to tell WNY how much he loved Soccer for Success and why others should get involved. 

His passion was endless.

The Greg Massey Coach-Mentor Memorial Award recognizes coach-mentors who go above and beyond, are empatheic, caring, encouraging, fun, and passionate about the program, their players, and the community.  

Players and their families are encouraged to vote for a coach-mentor who they believe have these great qualities.
