The Parents


Positive Coaching Alliance

Santa Cruz City YSC is a member of the Positive Coaching Alliance and prides itself on creating a healthy environment for its youth players.  The club focuses on teaching your player to honor the game, to redefine what it means to be a "Winner", and filling your child's emotional tank.  At the end of each Fall season the parents nominate coaches for the club's Positive Coaching Award.  As parents, we want all players to learn healthy life lessons through soccer play as well as a love for the game.

The Parents' Role

  • Support and encourage your child and team
  • Let the coach do the coaching
  • Model good behavior
  • Be a parent after the game, not a critic

The club is a volunteer-run non-profit organization with the mission of creating an environment where local kids can play and develop their skill and love of the game of soccer.   Please consider participating as a volunteer, sponsoring a team, or sponsoring a player so that all can play without regard to their family's financial situation.
