The US Youth Soccer Coaching Education Department, in cooperation with the Coaching and Recreational Committees, has created this view from the sidelines in an effort to create a positive learning environment for those involved in the lives of young soccer players. The Department is proud to provide a teaching tool designed for administrators, coaches, parents and anyone who cares about children to assist them in providing positive learning atmosphere for our children. The DVD will assist adults in helping young players play and keeping the fun in youth sports.
Positive Parenting discusses the practice and game environment as well as the ride home, each from the perspective of the players, referees and coaches.
"Positive Parenting addresses positive behavior and supportive techniques to enhance the players' enjoyment of the game,” said David Messersmith, president of US Youth Soccer. “The DVD is reasonably priced so it can be used by everyone and believe it to be an asset to those working with our youth players."
