Coach
The coaching honour went to Hillsborough United's Andrew Bartlett, who also led his under-14 boys to a provincial title, following a season where they finished in first place in the regular season with just one loss.

Officials
The official-of-the-year awards went to Aziz Chiheb, who has been extremely consistent and without doubt one of the best referees in Prince County, and Hailey Terstege, who has shown tremendous improvement in a short space of time and whose confidence and knowledge of the game has grown considerably.

Administrator
Mark Victor was named administrator of the year for the fine work he has done as the president of the Winsloe/Charlottetown Royals.

The prestigious Lowell Stewart Memorial Award, given to a young player who is active not just in soccer, but also in volunteering and the community, was presented jointly to Hannah Hardy of the Summerside United and Thomas Carter-Thompson from Stratford.
Hardy and Carter-Thompson are described as fine young individuals, who give back to their respective clubs by coaching, officiating and helping wherever they are needed.
Hardy has assisted with the United club coaching the under-10 girls. She shows great responsibility in practising and developing the skills of the players. She also volunteers at tournaments, assists at registrations and is also an up-and-coming referee.
