In Memory of Nick Lincir


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear friend and former Area Director Nick Lincir.  Nick was born July 21, 1933 in Croatia and passed away on April 3, 2022 in his home town of San Pedro.  

Nick volunteered for the American Youth Soccer Organization in 1971 for Region 6 San Pedro. He held the position of Regional Commissioner and in 1980 became the Area Director for Area 1F that he held until he retired in 2012.   

He coached his son Mark and any team that needed a coach. In addition, he was a Section badge referee. Nick would attend all the Section 1 conferences and NAGM meetings.  Nick left his mark on our program by ensuring that every player got a minimum of one half of the game was fulfilled.    

Out of the six philosophies of AYSO, Nick’s highest priority was Good Sportsmanship. He always said that if you believe in this one philosophy, the others naturally fall into place and he was right!  

Nick will be missed but his legacy will live on in the hearts and souls of every person he knew. Nick was a man that gave it all and asked for nothing in return.   


“May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sunshine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.”
