"The Pledge" is also available from the AYSO Supply Center in DVD or VHS.
Regions now have another tool to use in increasing awareness of this important AYSO program. "The Pledge" is a 12 minute video in which AYSO volunteers describe the atmosphere they feel should prevail at our practices and games. It also features a TV news story about crowd violence and misbehavior at youth sporting events and the steps AYSO is taking to combat it. Finally, there is a scenario where a parent decides to intervene and persuade another adult to change his behavior. Show it at registration events, coach training sessions and meetings. It can also be played at the beginning of the season team meeting or for distribution to all parents for viewing at home.
