HELP DEVELOP HEALTHY YOUTH SOCCER PROGRAMS
Take a Survey and Help Create Healthy Lifestyles in Youth Sports
Massachusetts Youth Soccer is encouraging coaches and volunteers to take an independent online survey about snacks, beverages, and physical activity offered to children in their programs. Feedback from this survey will help inform the development of resources to support leaders like you in promoting healthy programs. Those who complete the survey by May 24, 2013 will be entered to win one of ten $200 gift cards. All survey responses will be kept strictly confidential and anonymous. The survey is multiple-choice and will take about ten minutes to complete. Click here to begin: https://secure3.surveynetwork.com/OutOfSchoolProgram
