The 2017 season was commemorated across the country with end of season parties, held by most of the league's 38 clubs. Not only was excellence and valor on the field recognized, but hard work and dedication to club and country off the field was acknowledged as well.

A number of familiar names were given certificates and awards of merit for their clubs this season. Revos Hamilton May (DSM), Erik Hanson (NC), and Brent Fischer (MIN) all took out Best & Fairest honors for their teams, and fellow Yanks Nolan Cox and Pat Miller did the same. On the Women's side, the USA Freedom and Liberty had five B&Fs, with Cailin Deal (BOS), Lindsay Kastanek (DEN), Jess Gray (DEN), Leilani Silvio (LA), and Rosemary Kloh (SAC) all winning. A few up and coming Americans also were Best and Fairest for their clubs: gridiron quarterback Hollie Petrie (POR) and the meteoric April Lewis (SEA) may be names worth watching in the lead up to the Parallel Cup this year and the 2020 International Cup.
