Kick It Forward Street Soccer Tournament April 26
AYSA is sponsoring the annual Soccer Fair on April 26 at the Duluth Heritage Center. A full day of soccer-related activities are lined up, including skills stations, a 4v4 Street Soccer Tournament (no team required, players switch teams from game to game and individual awards are handed out!), and guest appearances by Minnesota United players! Put it on your calendar, it will be great fun!
Soccer for 3 & 4 Year-Old's
AYSA's Little NetBusters program is accepting online registration NOW at AYSA's website for summer 2015. There will be two sessions, the first on all five Tuesdays in June and the second on Tuesdays Agust 4 through September 1. There will be two time slots for each session, 5 PM or 6:15 PM, and the site will be the Jean Duluth Fields. Players may purchase a size 3 soccer ball when registering for $7.
Little NetBusters is only for kids who are age 3 or 4 years as of July 31, 2015. Younger kids are not eligible, while older kids must play Congdon Park Soccer in the fall.
IMPORTANT: These sessions fill QUICKLY! There is limited space in Little NetBusters due to a limited number of coaches for each session. Do not wait to register your kids if you want to participate in this. Last year registration closed in early May because the sessions were full!
Referee Clinics for Summer 2015
Kids age 10 and up (and any adults... we need adults!) are encouraged to become certified as referees so that they can officiate matches in both AYSA's summer and fall seasons. Certification is through US Soccer and conducted by the state arm of the federation, the Minnesota State Referee Committee (MNSRC).
Registration is online at www.minnesotasrc.com. Cost is $60, and includes 7 hours of online training and then attendance an at 8-hour classroom session. Classroom sessions offered this spring will be on Sunday March 29, Tuesday, April 7 (during the schools' spring break), and Saturday, April 18. Each classroom session will run from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM... you only need to select one of those dates. Sign up for the class after completing the online work on the MNSRC website.
All interested parties should contact Dave Dewitt by email to let him know you are interested.
