Soccer for 3 and 4 Year Old Players!
This August 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. Players must be either 3 or 4 years old on July 31, 2013.
More information and access to a registion form is below.
The Spring Tune-Up Camp
Saturday May 18, 7:45 AM: The Boot Room Camp, scheduled for this morning at Stebner Fields, is cancelled. The strong possibilityof thunder storms, and wet weather with a 36 degree wind chill forces us to make this decision. There will be no makeup session, we will refund camp registration fees for this session.
Looking forward to next soccer season? AYSA has a number of options for players in the summer of 2013.
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 2012 scholarship recipients; Nick Early from Hermantown High School and Micayla Westendorf who attended Proctor High School! If you have questions regarding the college scholarship, please contact Dave Geary at 218-62-1713 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/
The Duluth soccer community lost one of its heroes last year. Bob Pratt died of cancer on May 1, 2011 at the age of 58. Bob was, at various times, the Congdon club coordinator, the East club coordinator, a member of Arrowhead Youth Soccer Association Board of Directors, a founder and active member of Fields for Duluth, a founder of the East Select Soccer Club, a and a founder of the Lake Superior Open Soccer Tournament. Bob was also an active coach for many years and volunteered in many other soccer projects. Bob was instrumental in establishing several soccer fields in Duluth and was arguably the primary force behind the establishment of the Jean Duluth Soccer Complex.
For years Bob recognized the need for a building at the Jean Duluth complex that would provide much needed weather shelter and storage, as well as a permanent concessions facility. Towards the end of his life he began to work in earnest on this project. After Bob’s death a memorial was established to finish his work, and erect a building in Bob’s memory. Plans have been developed for the building, A ground breaking ceremony was held September 19, and the slab will be in by late October. We continue to fundraise to ensure that we have adequate funds for this project.
You can contribute to this very worthy cause with a donation to the Bob Pratt Memorial Fund at Fields for Duluth. Please make your check to Fields for Duluth and indicate that you would like the funds to go to the Bob Pratt Memorial Fund. Please send your check to: AYSA, 3501 Grand Ave. Duluth, MN 55807. All funds received will go directly to building construction costs. All donations are tax deductible.
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.
