On October 23, SSgt Brad Kiefer, from the Zionsville Police Department, visited ZYSA to deliver two sessions regarding drugs awareness.
Session one was aimed at the players from the 2004 age group and how to protect themselves from the ever - growing problem of drugs. This included, how to recognize the different types, the dangers of each drug and how to remove themselves from situations where drugs may be a part of the environment.
Session two was aimed at the parents and coaches at the club to help them understand the signs of people who may be using drugs, how to recognize what drug paraphernalia looks like and what different types of drugs are common in Boone County.
At ZYSA, we see ourselves as more than a “soccer” club. We are helping to develop the young people of the future by using sport and soccer as a vehicle. This is just another way of helping our young players navigate through that “growing up” process.
As we move forward, the police department will come into the club, once a year, and deliver the sessions to the U14 age group, this particular age group was chosen on advice from the police department.
We are very excited about this latest partnership that can help us care for and support all our players at ZYSA. For more information, questions, concerns or feedback about this program, please reach out to the Directors of Coaching.
DATE FOR YOUR DIARY:
In early March 2018, the police department will return to ZYSA for a session aimed at our High School players. The session will be pre-spring break and will include the dangers of being tempted by drugs while on vacation.
