Parent Information

The following document contains information about the various levels of New Ulm Soccer.


NUAYSA -- A parent-run, volunteer organization

NUAYSA is a parent-run, volunteer organization. The parents of all children in the program are expected to make a strong commitment to the program, and to serve a specified number of volunteer hours.

Volunteer Hours requirement:

  • U4 = 5 hours per player
  • U6 through U18 = 10 hours per player
  • Maximum of 20 hours per family
  • $10 per hour payout if volunteer hours are not met

Please sign up for volunteer opportunities through the Dibs tab near the top right of this web page.

If you believe you will not be able to serve part or all or your assigned volunteer hours, you are encouraged to pay the “buy-out” fee for those hours in advance of the season.

Receiving these buy-out payments in advance will allow the NUAYSA board to hire paid assistance for some of the required tasks, thus insuring a well-run soccer program.


NUAYSA Concussion Policy

For the safety of all our players, NUAYSA has voted to adopt MYSA's concussion policy. 

Please see the files below for more information.

It is recommended but not required that all parents take training on this topic. More information about these training sessions is available here.


Things for Parents to keep in mind

  • Stress fair and sensible play with your child.
  • Stress the importance of teamwork.
  • Applaud good plays by both teams.
  • Your job as parent is to cheer on your child, the coach's job is to coach them, and the referee's job is to ref. Respect others and let them do their job.
  • Respect the coach’s decisions and abilities.
  • The sidelines are not a place to shout personal instructions to your child.
  • Don’t force your child to decide whether to listen to you or to the coach.
  • Remember that coaches and administrators are volunteers.
  • A “thank you” every once in a while to coaches is welcomed.
  • Accept the decisions of the officials with good grace.
  • Take time to learn the rules of the game.
  • Never lose sight of the fact that you as a parent are your child's greatest role model!
