What impact do you have on your players?  

Are you interested in coaching for success of your players ON  and OFF the field?

As a coach, you are the most important role model in the lives of your players. It is an unfortunate reality that many of the youth you interact with face violence and abuse in their relationships, homes, and other environments. Our youth deserve an equal playing field where they can achieve their full potential as athletes and human beings. YOU can help ensure this.

The second annual AYSA Kick it Forward Duluth Soccer Fair was held on April 26.  Approximately 700 kids and parents participated in the fair's activities. Highlights of the day included a street soccer tournament that 127 kids participated in, the MN United skills session, with hundreds of kids learning from the pros, and a soccer skills carnival for kids to test their skills at different soccer games. We have many people and organizations to thank for our success, a few of which are listed below.


All AYSA coaches are required to complete concussion training before they can coach games or practices.  The video training at this link meets those requirements.  Please print the completion form at the end of the training.
This is also a great video for parents or players.  It will help you recognize the signs of concussion and provides information on how to deal with a player that may have a concussion.  Learn more in this CDC sponsored concussion video.  Please click Read More to access the video training.


An organization as large as AYSA has many volunteers and supporters that work behind the scenes with little recognition.   One company that has been supporting AYSA activities for more than 15 years is Hartel DBJ Disposal.  Hartel donates disposal and recycling services on select  AYSA fields, saving our organization significent dollars, and allowing us to keep the cost of playing soccer affordable.  This is our opportunity to say Thanks to Hartel DBJ Disposal!.

We have included a number of short video presentations on soccer rules in order to give coaches and parents an opportunity to better understand the rules of the game and how referee make their on field decisions.  Each topic is very short, about ten minutes, and presented in an informative and easy to understand format.
These presentations will give viewers an opportunity to see the information presented to referees in order to help them discern the difference between a legal challenge and a foul.
  Here are links to video rules topics:


A concussion is a brain injury and can be quite serious.  The US Dept. of Health Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has prepared some excellent resources to help parents and players identify the signs and symptoms of concussions, and what to do if you think you or a family member may have a concussion.
