Each year, the Passaic County Coaches Association honors one member as the County Coach of the Year.

Each member school will be allowed to nominate and submit the name of one coach from their staff for consideration.

The award will be presented at our first general membership meeting of the next school year and includes a handsome plaque.  All nominated coaches have their names listed in the program and are recognized that evening.
