March 3, 2023

etrainu, alongside US Youth Soccer welcome Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA), who have joined the USYS University.

The US Youth Soccer University is the first-ever gathering of educational resources designed to educate members on a multitude of subjects so they can perform better on and off the field of play. MYSA is currently implementing their bespoke instance of the University and will make it available for members over the coming months. For more than 50 years, MYSA has been helping member clubs provide a safe and meaningful soccer experience for youth players in Minnesota. Through the USYS University, MYSA will benefit first hand from course content and by extension, from education pathways tailored to coaches, officials, administrators and parents.

The University will bring together content from partners like TrueSport, Hospital for Special Surgery, Soccer Parenting, US Center for Safe Sport, Mojo and US Center for Mental Health and Sport. Alongside that, there will be a number of unique courses designed and developed by US Youth Soccer. MYSA will leverage the national curriculum to offer a number of courses tailored to players, parents, coaches, administrators and officials.

The University has two subscription tiers, freemium which contains introductory courses and access to the platform, and premium, which also includes exclusive course content for $5 per annum. Learners will be able to sign up to the University and select the subscription model that best suits their needs.

VP Sales & Revenue at etrainu, Cameron O’Riordan said “Our partnership with Minnesota Youth Soccer is an exciting opportunity to impact educational pathways in the soccer community. The progression of the partnership alongside the training roadmap puts us in a great position to help the community.”

MYSA’s CEO, Ayla Lokkesmoe said, “We are excited to be able to offer this benefit to coaches throughout the state. We see this partnership with etrainu as an avenue to expand our outreach and impact on the game, specifically as a way to deliver meaningful resources to grow the game within Minnesota.”

MYSA will first promote the University to coaches before expanding to administrators, players, parents and officials.
