alt

With the release of "Positive Parenting," US Youth Soccer furthers its commitment to creating a supportive environment for young athletes. The US Youth Soccer Coaching Education Department, in cooperation with the Coaching and Recreational Committees, has created this 'view from the sidelines' in an effort to create a positive learning environment for those involved in the lives of young soccer players. The Department is proud to provide a teaching tool designed for administrators, coaches, parents and anyone who cares about children to assist them in providing positive learning atmosphere for our children. The DVD will assist adults in helping young players play and keeping the fun in youth sports.

"The Positive Parenting for Youth Soccer DVD is yet another resource from US Youth Soccer to support the game for all kids," said Sam Snow, director of coaching education for US Youth Soccer. "The DVD will contribute to a healthy and developmentally appropriate environment for youth soccer players."

Positive Parenting discusses the practice and game environment as well as the ride home, each from the perspective of the players, referees and coaches.

This presentation provides a unique blend of psychology/philosophy and interviews with children of various ages. This video provides insight on:

  • Why children play
  • Teaching sportsmanship by example
  • How to be supportive soccer parents
  • Developing vs. winning
  • Red cards for parents
  • Emotional needs of players
  • Keeping it all in perspective
