The Soccer Parenting Association is a movement for social change that seeks to elevate the game by enhancing every child’s youth soccer experience through engaging, educating, supporting and advocating for youth soccer parents.
MySoccerParenting.com is the Association’s groundbreaking education platform that provides parents with the information, support, guidance and education necessary to ensure their soccer player will thrive.
The expansive educational resource of MySoccerParenting.com provides parents with a single source of information, support and education when it comes to the six pillars of Soccer Parenting – Mind, Body, Game, Next Level, Parent, Coach/Club. Parents are provided with information on how to support their child with their mind – the mental side of the game, their body – the physical side of the game, and given a deeper understanding of the game such as systems of play, and principles and laws of the game. Parents will also find valuable perspective to help their child reach the next level, thoughtful advice on their role as a parent, plus guidance in their relationship and expectations for the coach/club.

The most recent Summit was held Dec. 8-10, 2017, and US Club Soccer executives Kevin Payne and Christian Lavers were featured, along with Julie Foudy (Positive Coaching Alliance) and John Cone (Fit for 90).
