What impact do you have on your players?
Are you interested in coaching for success of your players ON and OFF the field?
As a coach, you are the most important role model in the lives of your players. It is an unfortunate reality that many of the youth you interact with face violence and abuse in their relationships, homes, and other environments. Our youth deserve an equal playing field where they can achieve their full potential as athletes and human beings. YOU can help ensure this.

The first annual AYSA Kick it Forward Duluth Soccer Fair was held on April 27. Approximately 1000 kids and parents participated in the fair's activities. Highlights of the day included a street soccer tournament that 127 kids participated in, the MN United skills session, with hundreds of kids learning from the pros, and a soccer skills contest for kids 8 -13. We have many people and organizations to thank for our success, a few of which are listed below.
The US Soccer Foundation is supporting Arrowhead Youth Soccer's Kick It Forward program in 2014. The US Soccer Foundation had provided funding and equipment to assist us with our after school and summer soccer programs in Lincoln Park and Central/East Hillside. For more information on US Soccer Foundation grants and other programs, please click here.
A big thank you to US Soccer Foundation for allowing us to make sure that every kid that wants to play soccer is able to!
One of the ways AYSA supports our local youth soccer community is to offer two $1000 college scholarships each year. The Arrowhead Youth Soccer College Scholarship Program was established in the year 2000 through the efforts of the AYSA Board of Directors. High school seniors that live in an area served by AYSA and that participated in AYSA or another local youth soccer program are eligible to apply. Recipients are selected by the AYSA Board of Directors in late summer or fall of each year. Registration forms are available here and will be sent to local high school guidance offices by April 1. Congratulations to our 2014 scholarship recipients; Kailee Katt from Esko High School and Matthew Borash from Hermantown High School! If you have questions regarding the college scholarship, please contact Dave Geary at 218-624-1713 or email@example.com
An organization as large as AYSA has many volunteers and supporters that work behind the scenes with little recognition. One company that has been supporting AYSA activities for more than 15 years is Hartel DBJ Disposal. Hartel donates disposal and recycling services on select AYSA fields, saving our organization significent dollars, and allowing us to keep the cost of playing soccer affordable. This is our opportunity to say Thanks to Hartel DBJ Disposal!.

A concussion is a brain injury and can be quite serious. The US Dept. of Health Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has prepared some excellent resources to help parents and players identify the signs and symptoms of concussions, and what to do if you think you or a family member may have a concussion.
