PSA and the Soccer Parenting Association Announce Partnership

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
 
POTOMAC SOCCER ASSOCIATION AND THE SOCCER PARENTING ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP PROVIDING SUPPORT AND EDUCATION TO YOUTH SOCCER PARENTS VIA MYSOCCERPARENTING.COM 
 
 
POTOMAC, MARYLAND – SEPTEMBER 5, 2017  - Potomac Soccer Association and the Soccer Parenting Association today announce a partnership agreement by which all families associated with Potomac Soccer will now receive free access to the educational content on the MySoccerParenting.com platform. 
 
MySoccerParenting.com seeks to improve and enhance the experience for youth soccer players by engaging and supporting the players’ parents on topics related to the Body, Mind, Coach, Parent, Next Level and the Game. Potomac Soccer, founded in 1980 by Bill Wilson of Potomac, Maryland, serves 1000 families in Montgomery County, Maryland. Potomac Soccer provides our players with opportunities to develop their talents in the sport through an enjoyable, challenging, and rewarding soccer environment. Through the commitment and dedication of talented, experienced, and enthusiastic coaches, the club serves as a platform for all of its players to learn beyond the field, and to promote good sportsmanship, cooperation, and teamwork. It is our belief that our players, through participating in competitive soccer, learn important values, habits, and principles that come from their commitment to excelling in the sport, and thus provide them with a foundation for developing not only as soccer players, but as people. 
 
According to the National Alliance of Youth Sports and reported in the Aspen Institute “State of Play” report, 70% of youths stop participating in organized sports by the age of 13.  While there are many reasons for this unfortunate trend, engaging parents in the game and providing them with education and guidance related to the youth soccer experience of their child is an important step towards reversing this trend. 
 
“The investment Potomac Soccer is making towards positively affecting the lives of the players and families associated with their club is commendable.  We are proud to work with the Potomac Soccer Association and are encouraged by their commitment to make a positive impact in their community through sport,” said Skye Eddy Bruce, Founder of the Soccer Parenting Association. 
 
Laurie Lane, Executive Director adds, “Making sure that our players are learning soccer and having fun is key to their success. Parents have to remember that the game isn’t about them. We are fully committed to making the game a safe environment for our players to flourish.”
