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 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!.
