      In recent months, the national media has focused on the negative, even violent, behavior of players, coaches and parents involved in youth sports.  In a proactive effort to counteract this trend of violence, AYSO is initiating a program called  Kid's Zone

        As part of AYSO's education agenda, Kid's Zone is a dynamic program targeted to eliminate negative sideline behavior.  It is aimed toward producing a thoroughly positive impact on everyone involved in youth soccer.  To execute this program, three basic elements are involved:

          1.  The Badge.  This is a pin-on badge bearing the program's logo.  This will be worn by program   supporters at games, and will serve as reminder of the importance of positive sideline behavior.
          2. The Sign.     A large sign, which lists positive behavior standards, will be posted at the entrance of participating fields.  All who feel they can abide by these standards are welcome to enter, all others are not.
          3.  The Pledge.  We will request AYSO parents to sign a pledge that holds the to the Kid's Zone standards.

        In order to ake this progra work, we need your help!  We are looking for a couple of regions (ours starts as soon as we get all the materials...Thank You Dale) that will volunteer to pilot Kid's Zone programs within each Section.

        If you would like to take part in this progressive program,
        please call Lolly Keys @ 800/USA-AYSO or email her @ lollykeys@ayso.org
