Helping Soccer Parents Understand the Game and Support Their Players
US Club Soccer has welcomed the Soccer Parenting Association as the newest Players First partner in a growing portfolio of best-in-class resources for member clubs, coaches, players, and parents.
A cool idea — the Soccer Parenting Association – through its multiple platforms, including MySoccerParenting.com – will provide support, education, and resources to parents of youth soccer athletes to help them excel on the field and in life.
The expansive educational resource of MySoccerParenting.com includes articles, exclusive interviews, online courses, webinars, e-books, Q&As, a “Soccer Talk” feature for specific guidance and a private Facebook community.
Individuals may purchase an annual membership for $4.99/month by following this link, or clubs may purchase access for all their parents, coaches and administrators for $475 per year – an annual savings of $25 for US Club Soccer members.
Beyond the discounted access, the Soccer Parenting Association will be supplying regular content, including webinars, through US Club Soccer’s digital and social media channels, as a regular contributor to the Parent Engagement & Education pillar of Players First.
“The Players First pillar of Parent Engagement & Education is a crucial part of the Players First philosophy,” said Kevin Payne, US Club Soccer CEO.
“What makes the Soccer Parenting Association unique is the amount of personalized content within the platform and its focus completely on parents,” said Payne. “It’s an educational environment that maintains a dialogue with parents that will ultimately lead to better experiences for players, coaches and clubs.”
The Soccer Parenting Association hosts an annual online conference, the SoccerParentingSummit.com, featuring some of the country’s top soccer educators, parenting experts and leaders in sports performance with messages and presentations provided directly to parents. The next summit is being planned for December 2017, and US Club Soccer families will be eligible for discounted pricing.
“The Soccer Parenting Association is improving the youth soccer experience for players, parents and coaches through our work to engage, educate, support and advocate for youth soccer parents,” said Skye Eddy Bruce, founder of Soccer Parenting Association.
“Clubs and coaches are realizing the benefits of communicating and connecting with parents – such as heightened player enjoyment and development. We are excited to partner with US Club Soccer’s Players First initiative, and connect youth soccer clubs and parents to our Parent Education Platform: MySoccerParenting.com. As parents receive the support and education they need through the MySoccerParenting.com platform, our young players will thrive on the fields and in life.”
