WEST ALLIS, WISCONSIN – To improve player, referee, coach, and parent experiences at youth soccer games throughout Wisconsin, Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) has engaged the Soccer Parenting Association and The Sideline Project in a multi-year partnership agreement. Parents will have access to The Sideline Project and Successful Soccer Parenting Courses and clubs affiliated with WYSA will be able to join the Soccer Parenting Association and provide membership benefits to their coaches and parents for the discounted fee of $250/year. (Club Membership fees are eligible for reimbursement through the WYSA Referee Mentorship and Retention Initiative. Please refer to WYSA website for details and reimbursement application.)
The Soccer Parenting Association improves the game day experiences of players, referees, coaches, and spectators with The Sideline Project, and engages, supports, and educates youth soccer parents and coaches with their robust youth soccer education platform, the SoccerParentResourceCenter.com.
“Creating a culture that promotes positive experiences for players, referees, coaches, and spectators is foundational to our success as a State Association. We are thrilled to partner with The Soccer Parenting Association to further our mission to Serve, Inspire and Lead the Growth of Soccer”, said Melissa Zielinski, Executive Director of Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association. “This partnership provides our 130 affiliated organizations with valuable resources to support and educate the 70,000+ players, coaches, and volunteer members across Wisconsin. We are confident that the Soccer Parenting Association will empower every member to be their best.”
Providing a positive youth sporting experience where all children feel inspired, develop important life skills, and establish healthy life-long habits must be a top priority for all youth sport organizations.
“The investment WYSA is making towards positively affecting the lives of soccer players, families, dedicated coaches, and referees in Wisconsin is commendable. We are proud to work with Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association and are encouraged by their commitment to improving the youth soccer landscape in the state,” said Skye Eddy, Founder of the Soccer Parenting Association.
