The Xi Alpha Theta Chapter of Kentucky’s Beta Sigma Phi Sorority selected LYSA TOPSoccer as the recipient of the money the members raised from their recent ways and means projects. Their 2011 Convention was held in Frankfort in June. Their service project this year focused on Autism Spectrum Disorder. During the convention, Amy Cooper-Puckett spoke on the programs available from the State and both she and Heidi Banks, the parent of a child with autism, were available to respond to questions from the audience. Beta Sigma Phi is an international women's friendship network. It also provides educational programs to its members and opportunities for service to others.

The TOPSoccer Buddy of the Year award is given each year by the Kentucky Youth Soccer Association. The award is for a volunteer who demonstrates patience, understanding, dependability, flexibility and the ability to adjust to ever-changing on-field situations. This person is also an invaluable volunteer who facilitates the program by filling many roles, including being a coach, cheerleader and role model as well as assisting when needed with administrative responsibilities. Other important qualities of the buddy are engaging players one-on-one, modeling desired behavior and being cognizant of player safety. Buddies assist, guide, direct and teach the game of soccer and its skills while creating a fun learning experience.
