GEYA is a Chester County, PA youth recreational soccer league located in the Glenmoore & Eagle PA areas. We offer Spring and Fall Soccer for youths K-12 and a HIGH 5 Soccer Program for children with special needs.
The parent or guardian plays a key role in the development of the soccer player. Obviously the parent or guardian has tremendous influence on the values, attitude, and outlook on life that a child develops, including those related to the playing of soccer.
I provide positive support and encouragement to my child, other players on their team, and to opponents

As needed, I bring my child to practice (typically 15 minutes early) and games (typically 30 minutes early) on time.
As needed, I notify the coach when practices or games will be missed or arrived at late.

I remind my child not to get down on themselves and to keep playing hard.

I am a role model of good sportsmanship and expect my child to be the same:
