Voyageurs Player of 2009


Recommended Posts

Let's see if we can't fire this up on the women's side as well. Same deal as on the Men's side. The rules are:

It's year end and once again the Voyageurs invite all members to participate in our annual polling for International Player of the Year.

As per tradition all submissions for the IPoY will be conducted in public, in this topic. You are welcome to edit your submission at any time up until the deadline for submissions.

The deadline for submissions is 12:01 AM (EST) January 1st, New Years Day 2010.

Submissions for IPoY must have a first place selection and can also include a second, and third place selection.

A point system is used to calculate a players points total at the completion of polling. A player will receive 5 points for a 1st place selection, 3 points for a 2nd place selection, and 1 point for a third place selection.

The player with the highest final aggregate total will be declared the Voyageurs International Player of the Year.

A couple of other rules.

Only one submission per IP address. Additional submissions from the same IP address allowed entirely at the Administrators discretion.

For a player to be eligible for the Voyageurs International Player of the Year the player must have been selected for international duty at either the senior or U20 level in 2009 and be eligible to play for Canada, in accordance with FIFA laws & statutes, as of December 17th, 2009.

All you do is post three players like this:

1. Gracie Bowen

2. Viola Hastings

3. Olivia Lennox

Simple enough.
