A Soccer Parenting Membership: 5 Reasons Your Club Needs One

Soccer clubs are made up of essential elements. Soccer parents, club coordinators, coaches and players are integral parts of the whole. How they interact can make or break a club’s success. By understanding what each contributes and needs, a club can succeed.

Soccer Parenting Memberships Help Clubs Succeed!

Here’s how your club could thrive with membership:

1. Strong support inspires players

It’s a rational definition of support: to give approval, comfort, or encouragement. Through community and educational materials, Soccer Parenting members can learn how to lend their support in the most beneficial ways. For parents who are members, this helps the children they raise.  And for our clubs who are members, an improved club structure nurtures the improvement of skills.

As soccer parents, we often shift blame for hiccups in our players’ development to coaches, clubs, officials, and opportunity. Just as our children strive for better play every season, we parents can do the same with the right support.

2. Collaboration boosts player development

An environment built on intelligence for what is most appropriate for our players gives them the strongest chance to improve and foster a love for the game. This must come from the top club officials, to parents, and even siblings. If any of a player's support loses sight of development, his or her journey becomes harder.

Insight into how other soccer parents and coaches navigate these waters can inspire us. A refocus on what is at stake allows us to provide assistance in the most helpful ways.

3. Desire to improve leads to remarkable things

Being diplomatic isn't the right way to improve parent support, if that backing is to achieve your own objectives. Wanting to understand your players' journey and role is a more practical approach. Unlike sales graphs, player development isn't always a linear progression, and the more we understand that, the better we can help our child trust the process.

Our Soccer Parenting Membership provides coaches, clubs, and parents with relevant deep dives into issues affecting the game and our involvement in it Understanding development puts you ahead and opens more learning opportunities.

4. Parents can change the game

It won't take legislation to change. Soccer parents dedicated to a better experience can transform the game. Entrusting your child to a club that recognizes this becomes your superpower.

This alignment of values starts at the top. We as parents can register our players in organizations that get it. A mindful approach to player and team development, then, becomes an appealing characteristic of a successful club. By holding ourselves accountable for our role, we help clubs evolve — and create a youth soccer culture we can be proud of.

5. Membership galvanizes the club's mission

A player or team can operate in the 'zone' at peak performance, and so too can a club. Soccer Parenting Club members can participate in quarterly webinars with Soccer Parenting founder Skye Eddy. Youth soccer leaders join Skye to discuss topics essential to a successful program. Membership can help provide a tool clubs can use to engage with parents and establish trust.
