MASS YOUTH SOCCER ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SOCCER PARENTING ASSOCIATION
Two Groups Will Work Together to Provide Education and Guidance to Youth Soccer Clubs and Parents
Lancaster, MA. (February 27, 2020) ― As part of a continued effort to enhance the youth soccer experience for its membership, Massachusetts Youth Soccer announced a partnership today with the Soccer Parenting Association. Through the relationship, clubs and parents will be provided valuable resources and information via access to the Soccer Parent Resource Center’s coach and parent education platform.
“Our mission is to provide an inclusive, affordable, safe and fun soccer experience for players of all ages and abilities” said Mike Borislow, Mass Youth Soccer Executive Director. “Soccer Parenting provides fantastic tools and resources for our member organization leaders and their parents that supports this mission. Through setting a positive and healthy atmosphere for all participants in the game, we hope to attract and retain more players, volunteers and referees.”
The Soccer Parenting Association seeks to improve the experience for youth soccer players by engaging and supporting the players’ parents on topics related to the Body, Mind, Coach, Parent, Next Level and the Game, as well as providing education for coaches to establish positive relationships with players and parents.
“The investment Mass Youth Soccer is making towards positively affecting the lives of soccer players, families and dedicated coaches in Massachusetts is commendable,” said Skye Eddy Bruce, Founder of the Soccer Parenting Association. “We are proud to work with Mass Youth Soccer and are encouraged by their commitment to improving the youth soccer landscape in the state.”
The Soccer Parenting Association believes that the top priority for all youth sport organizations should be a positive youth sporting experience where all children feel inspired, develop important life skills and establish healthy habits they will take with them for life.
The SoccerParentResourceCenter.com is a website dedicated to educating youth soccer parents and coaches. Everything on the site is created specifically with youth soccer parents in mind.
For club administrators, you will gain access to “The Sideline Project,” an engaging 15-minute on-line course for parents regarding appropriate sideline behavior. It provides parents a comprehensive understanding of the difference between supportive, distracting and hostile behavior so coaches and clubs can better ensure a positive sideline culture. Parents receive a Certificate of Completion they can present to the club.
For coaches, you will find quarterly live educational webinars, engaging educational opportunities related to establishing strong relationships with parents and players to support player development, as well as access to our private coach education interview series with some of the top youth soccer minds in the United States and Europe.
For parents, you will find interviews, live webinars, articles, courses, and short videos discussing issues related to youth soccer players such as mental performance, recovery, injury prevention, Laws of the Game, tactics, technical development, college recruiting, best practices for sports parenting and much more (including “The Sideline Project”).
