Building Confidence and Support in Our Young People

As part of our “Safeguarding Children Program” at ZYSA, we are pleased to announce that we have created a partnership with Zionsville Community Development Program. 

 Part of this program is the community wide initiative “Strong in Every Way.”

 This program is the brain child of Derek Peterson, the international child and youth advocate and the framework teaches us all how to build webs of support for our youth players at ZYSA.

 In soccer we teach technique, tactics and the physical aspect of the game but the hardest part is the mental aspect, not only of the game but of life itself.

 This program will help the kids to develop self-confidence and stronger mind sets that will not only help them on the soccer field but more importantly, in life in general. It will also teach the adults in their life how they can become “webs of support” to help them accomplish life’s goals.

 Below is a link to more information about the program.
