CMYSA will be hosting a meeting in spring 2017. Date is TBA.

As a parent or coach, would you like your child/athlete to:

  • Enjoy their participation in soccer more?
  • Be more motivated to play and improve?
  • Have an improved sense of self through competition?

Parents and Coaches Together (PACT) is an educational program developed at the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Ethical Education and Development. The program is:

  • Based on research from developmental, educational, and sport psychology.
  • Designed to help coaches and parents to be on the same page in successfully creating a positive and motivating climate in Minnesota youth soccer.
  • Presented by experienced trainers approved by the University of Notre Dame.

MYSA/PACT™ Mission:

  • Empower coaches and parents to realize their unique roles in fostering athlete intrinsic motivation, character development, optimal performance, well-being and satisfaction.

In 2010 CMYSA has made the commitment to have one parent from each family attend a PACT seminar prior to the season beginning before player cards can be issued.
