NEW WEBINAR: Community Matters: Steps to Establishing A Sense of Community in Teams and Clubs

We are thrilled to welcome our friend Eric Legg, Ph.D. to Soccer Parenting to discuss his fascinating and important research regarding youth sports, community building, parent engagement and game day behaviors. This webinar is relevant for parents, coaches, club leaders, team managers, and soccer administrators.

Community Matters: Step to Establishing a Sense of Community in Teams and Clubs

In this hour-long, live webinar we will discuss:

  • Sense of Community Theory Research and how it applies to youth sports.
  • How parents can improve the experiences for their child.
  • Steps team managers and coaches can take to establish a strong sense of community on their teams.
  • What we can do to keep our kids involved in sport and active for life.
  • Why focusing on community can improve the team and club culture - results of community building.
  • Plus, there will be time for your questions live!

Dr. Eric Legg is an associate professor in the School of Community Resources & Development at Arizona State University, and an affiliate faculty of the ASU Global Sport Institute. His research explores the question of how organizations use sport experiences as a means for youth and community development. Within that umbrella, he has examined the role of recreational sport in creating a sense of community, parent and fan behavior in sport, best practices in coaching and youth development, and best practices for sport volunteers. He has worked with numerous sport and youth development organizations including Soccer Parenting Association, Positive Coaching Alliance, the Utah Jazz, Boys & Girls Clubs, local parks and recreation departments and more.

We hope to see you for this free, live webinar!
