To foster a family-friendly soccer experience that allows children to blossom and develop successfully, AYSO is looking to partner with parents and have an open communication.
AYSO’s Safe Haven Information for Parents is an online module that informs parents of AYSO’s vision and all the steps that are taken to help provide a safe environment for their children. The module is designed for parents, does not require a login and includes a link to the CDC’s new parent site on concussion information.
To share this with your Region’s coaches and team parents, direct them to this page on AYSO.org and have them click on the link titled “AYSO’s Safe Haven Program for Parents.”
Also, have you been asking your parents to complete the Kids Zone pledge? This is a great way to encourage your families to have a positive season. Consider asking your Team Parents to be your Kids Zone advocates on each team and have them to pass out Tootsie Roll Pops with the Kids Zone sticker to any parent who gets a little extra excited along the sideline. Our goal is to have everyone focus on child safety, role model sporting behavior and how they can help children gain the most of their AYSO experience.
