Much more attention is being paid to parent education within the past two years. Most of what collective youth soccer has done (and other sports) is to provide a parent’s pledge for them to read and sign, which is quickly forgotten, if ever read at all. MSYSA believes that parent education is very similar to coach education in what is required to be successful. It needs to be free, easily and widely available, entertaining and informative, and from qualified sources.
In the launch of the entire grassroots program, parent education materials will begin to be available in Fall 2016.
