Jendryka Showcased in Interview by Two-Time FIFA Player of the Year Carli Lloyd
TopSoccer Is One Of The Most Valuable and Rewarding Programs in Youth Soccer
New Jersey Youth Soccer continues its virtual celebration of the 33rd Annual NJYS Awards Presented by RWJBarnabas Health today, officially announcing Molly Jendryka as the 2020 NJYS TOPSoccer Volunteer of the Year.
As part of her acknowledgement, Jendryka received a plaque and also participated in an exclusive interview by New Jersey native Carli Lloyd, who is an NJYS Ambassador and a two-time FIFA World Player of the Year.
US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training program for all athletes with intellectual, emotional, and or physical disabilities. The program strives to provide soccer opportunities (the opportunity of soccer) for players to develop at their own pace in a safe, fun, and supportive/inclusive environment.
“I am honored to have been nominated for and selected as this year’s TOPSoccer Volunteer of the Year,” said Jendryka. “As grateful as I am to have been selected, no award will equate to the value of being a part of such an amazing TOPSoccer program. I have learned so much from our players and my fellow volunteers in the past four years, and TOPSoccer is easily the highlight of every Saturday for me.”
Currently a high school senior, Jendryka is a varsity swimmer, school ambassador and Executive Director for Relay for Life at West Morris Mendham High School.
This is in addition to being a Girl Scouts of America Gold Award Recipient, member of the Mendham Library and St. Joseph’s Church Young Adult Leadership Councils, and a volunteer at the Kopila Valley Children’s Home in Nepal. Even with her numerous commitments, she still finds time to volunteer with the West Morris SC TOPSoccer Program.
Jendryka began her TOPSoccer journey in 2017 as a volunteer with West Morris SC. A high school freshman at the time, she quickly became a member of the leadership team at West Morris SC TOPSoccer. Among her many notable contributions are the development and execution of TOPZoom and Camp BuddEConnect, which were remote alternatives to traditional in-person TOPSoccer programming.
Her involvement and leadership in the TOPSoccer, TOPZoom and Camp BuddEConnect programs speaks to her unwavering commitment to offer unique opportunities to all members of the youth soccer community.
The program, designed by US Youth Soccer, emphasizes player-specific development, training and meaningful participation rather than competition and results.
