Leeds were also Challenge Cup runners-up, against St Helens and finished third in the table.
Rhinos’ Fran Goldthorp and Keara Bennett missed out on the young player honour to York’s Hollie Dodd.
York’s Tara Jane-Stanley had already been named Woman ofSteel, topping a shortlist which also included Rhinos’ Georgia Roche.
Other nominees for coach of the year were York’s Lindsay Anfield and Lee Westwood of Warrington Wolves.
All three winners were presented with their awards at an end of season celebration in the Manchester Suite at Old Trafford, before the Men’s Super League Grand Final.
Presentations were also made to Super League’s leading points-scorer, Michelle Davis of Warrington and top tackler, Featherstone Rovers’ Charley Blackburn.
Voting for coach and young player of the year was conducted by an internal panel including members of the England Performance Unit.
England coach Craig Richards will name a 24-player squad for the forthcoming World Cup at Headingley on Monday.
