Kids playing and enjoying soccer
At PRYAA, we want your child to enjoy their soccer experience here and stay with our program. Soccer is a wonderful sport to teach kids a healthy lifestyle, teamwork, and discipline. One of our goals is for your child to enjoy their experience and to attain that goal we ask coaches to focus on positive reinforcement and provide feedback to the parents about their child. This will create a healthy relationship between the players, parents and coaches and enhance your child's playing experience.
Parental and community involvement
At PRYAA, we are a family and when parents are involved with a program and have an active role, it makes the program vibrant. Our parents are volunteer coaches, and team moms. In addition, we are actively seeking other opportunities for parents to get involved to make our Soccer Program better. A few areas we need to get more parents involved are Marketing, and Community Coordinator.

Volunteer coaches and positive coaching
At PRYAA, our coaches care about your child and try to provide a positive experience for all the kids. Our coaches are volunteers and their time is valued at PRYAA because they are a critical part of the program. Many of the coaches, if not all, are parents who have kids in our program. We ask the coaches to focus on positive reinforcement techniques, the basics of soccer, emphasize positive character traits, actively recruit parents to not only assist but also to coach soccer, and communicate feedback to the parents about their child. The better the experience the parents and children have with the coach, the more likely the kids and parents are to remain in our program.
