Stoughton Youth Soccer will always be grateful to Cheryl Flanagan for her dedication to our league.  Cheryl was a board member and coach for over sixteen years. Her unwavering commitment to SYSL even after her children graduated from the program was immeasurable. From coaching, to concession stand duty, field clean-up, assisting with tournaments, processing registration, processing payments, and more, Cheryl was always giving of herself and her time.

Sadly Cheryl lost a long and courageous battle with breast cancer in April of 2008. It is with honor that we renamed our scholarship the Stoughton Youth Soccer Cheryl Flanagan Memorial Scholarship. We feel it is a fitting tribute to our friend.

Scholarship guidelines

The Stoughton Youth Soccer Cheryl Flanagan Memorial Scholarship is open to deserving Stoughton residents who will be graduating from high school and attending either a 2 or 4 year college.  The applicant needs to have participated in SYSL as a player as well as shown the same dedication and commitment that Cheryl did. Greatest consideration will be given to those candidates who have refereed, coached or volunteered for the league.

Winner determination

The winner(s) of the annual scholarship will be determined by a majority vote of the Board of Directors of SYSL.  A scholarship will not be awarded in a year when no well-qualified candidates are presented. Winner(s) will be announced at high school graduation .
