NJ Youth Soccer Mourns the Passing of Evelyn Gill

All of us at New Jersey Youth Soccer are mourning the passing of our friend and Past President, Evelyn Gill. 

Evelyn began her involvement with youth soccer by coaching her sons at the recreational and competitive level. She was later elected as President of New Jersey Youth Soccer on three occasions, first in the early 1990s and most recently completing a term as NJYS President in 2020. She established the first NJYS State Office, initiated the US Youth Soccer American Cup Festival and also organized New Jersey Youth Soccer's first coaching workshop. Additionally, she was a major factor in helping equalize funding for the Girls’ Olympic Development Program in our state.

Evelyn was selected as Secretary of the US Youth Soccer Board of Directors in 1996. She held that position until she was elected as Vice President of the US Youth Soccer Board of Directors, a position she held for 14 years. She was also on the US Soccer Board of Directors as well as its Disabled Athletes Committee and Credentials Committees. Further, she spent time serving on the US Soccer Governance Taskforce. Evelyn was inducted into the US Youth Soccer Hall of Fame in 2015.

We are so grateful to Evelyn for her years of service to New Jersey Youth Soccer and to the game of youth soccer. We thank Evelyn for her leadership, friendship, guidance and wisdom. She will be greatly missed by our New Jersey Youth Soccer family and the entire soccer community as a whole.
