Northwell Health-GoHealth names its first-ever Coach of the Year

A local soccer coach has won a new award given by Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care to honor the region’s most inspiring youth sports coaches.

Andrew Georg, a coach of the Plainedge Soccer Club, was named “Coach of the Year” by the healthcare network on Saturday, June 22, during a celebration at Eastplain Elementary School soccer field, located at 301 N. Delaware Ave. in North Massapequa. In addition, his league also received a $2,000 donation, which will be put towards the purchase of a popup tent for the team, as well as new jerseys and equipment.

“Good coaches help our community today and for decades to come. They play a pivotal role in a child’s life by teaching crucial skills like teamwork and perseverance,” said John George, Northwell Health-GoHealth’s lead physician assistant. “This award aims to recognize the contributions of coaches and to support our local leagues, ensuring every child has the chance to thrive in sports and beyond. We are honored to recognize Andrew Georg and know he will continue to make a difference for their players and our community.”

Having coached youth sports for about five years, including coaching soccer in Plainedge for girls ages 7 to 12 and softball for girls 9 and 10 in Plainedge and Massapequa, Georg’s impact can be seen in the good relationships he maintains with his players and the families of those he coaches.
