ZYSA is excited to bring you a new program coming this March. 
In our continued effort to promote and build character through soccer, ZYSA has partnered with the nationally recognized  Positive Coaching Alliance  organization to bring you a one of a kind program benefitting ZYSA parents to help you get the most out of your child's soccer experience.

Developing Winners in Life Through Sports

Parents will learn how to focus ensuring their children gain the higher value of youth and high school sports regardless of scoreboard results.   Everyone wants to win. That's the first goal in sports. But in youth sports there is a second, more important goal: teaching life lessons through sports. In this program, sports parents learn why and how to focus on that second goal.

By learning these strategies and applying these tools, parents can provide the positive support that will make their experience more enjoyable, their child's experience more enjoyable, and will actually go a long way to making them more successful on the field as well! And everyone has more fun!!  

In this 2-hour program you will learn..

  • Assessing your children's goals and desires in youth sports in comparison with their own   
  • How to talk with your child about practices, games and what they are learning through sports   
  • How to enact and reinforce PCA's major principles: Mastery of Sport (Not Just Scoreboard Results), which values effort, learning and bouncing back from mistakes and adversity; Filling Emotional Tanks, with the correct mix of truthful, specific praise and constructive criticism; and Honoring the Game through appropriate sideline behavior and interaction with coaches.

 Presented by PCA National Speaker, Ken Harkenrider can earn 2 hours off your volunteer time if you attend.
