Join us for a conversation about the immense impact coaches have on their players.
Help us improve the culture of coaching. Key discussion questions will include: What impact do you have on your players, beyond their athletic abilities? How do you impact players' identities and perceptions? How do we promote positive messages about the equal value of both girls and boys in sports?
Registration for all 2014 sessions is now closed
This summer AYSA will offer Little NetBusters, a program for 3 and 4 year old soccer players. This fun introduction to soccer will feature age appropriate soccer activities, rather than formal games. Each session will last one hour, and will be led by trained coaches using a curriculum designed for our youngest players.
Session I will run from June 3 through July 1 in Duluth, and session II will run from July 29 - August 26 in Duluth and Cloquet.
Players must be either 3 or 4 years old on July 31, 2014.

The first annual AYSA Kick it Forward Duluth Soccer Fair was held on April 27. Approximetely 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.

One of the ways AYSA supports our local youth soccer community is to offer two $500 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 2013 scholarship recipients; James Foldesi from Denfeld High School and Lauren Elwell from Duluth East 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!.
For More Information on Hartel DBJ Services please call 218 729-5446 or check their web site at http://www.hartels-dbj.com/
A concussion is a brain injury and can be quite serious.
