Bringing Parent, Players, and Coaches Together Around the Stuff That Really Matters


Whether you're walking the sidelines as a parent, as a coach, as a player, or as a club administrator, some of the best and most game-and-player supportive discussions will be happening all around you. Some of the most game-and-player destructive things are going on there as well. This program provides sideline conversations that add value to the game and to our young player's lives. 

Youth programs are for developing youth. They are not designed to turn young people into gladiators who do battle for the pleasure of sideline observers. While it's easy to get emotional at games, let's get emotional about the great things going on in our kids lives - the life skills they are learning, the positive examples of volunteerism, or the bonds that are deepening within families.
