JD: My goals for Florida Youth Soccer align with those of the GOALS Council: the state association’s main priority is to expand both our current member and player bases. Currently, Florida Youth Soccer’s player base consists of roughly 50,000 competitive soccer players and 50,000 recreational soccer players.
Florida Youth Soccer is focused on engaging our recreational programs more through the implementation of coaching education courses and the FYSA Bucks Program. The Bucks Program is very unique and has been a huge benefit for our members so far. For every recreational soccer player that is registered through FYSA, two dollars are returned to the clubs of those registrants. They can utilize FYSA Bucks to help purchase vital soccer equipment including soccer balls, pinnies, or coaching education dollars.
