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 aysa@chartermi.net

The Arrowhead Youth Soccer Association (AYSA) will hold its Annual Meeting and Elections at 7:00 PM February 11, 2015 at the Wheeler Fieldhouse, 3501 Grand Avenue. 
Positions up for election at this meeting include; Secretary, Treasurer, Competitive Chair, Lower Division Chair, and several At Large positions.

We will present awards to three young referees that have been recognized by the AYSA Board as our Referees of the Year for 2014.

 The AYSA board sets policy for all of Arrowhead Youth Soccer’s programs.  Board members are expected to attend one meeting monthly (normally the second Wednesday of the month) and serve on at least one AYSA committee. 
Those interested in serving on the AYSA board or seeking other information should call 624-1713 or email the AYSA Executive Director, Dave Geary, at aysa@chartermi.net.
All AYSA coaches are required to complete concussion training before they can coach games or practices.  The video training at this link meets those requirements.  Please print the completion form at the end of the training.
This is also a great video for parents or players.  It will help you recognize the signs of concussion and provides information on how to deal with a player that may have a concussion.  Learn more in this CDC sponsored concussion video.  Please click Read More to access the video training.


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!.

Are you interested in increasing your knowledge of soccer rules?
We have included a number of short video presentations on soccer rules in order to give coaches and parents an opportunity to better understand the rules of the game and how referee make their on field decisions.  Each topic is very short, about ten minutes, and presented in an informative and easy to understand format.
These presentations will give viewers an opportunity to see the information presented to referees in order to help them discern the difference between a legal challenge and a foul.
  Here are links to video rules topics:


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.
