Off the field the two organizations will collaborate to develop sports based educational initiatives that develop character and leadership through inspirational in person and innovative technology based programming. These initiatives will be initially focused on Soccer with potential to be expanded to other USSSA Sports.
A comprehensive Coaching Support Program will also be created to provide USSSA members with relevant coaching resources and continuing professional development opportunities that will be easily accessible and conveniently delivered locally.
Craig Scriven, USSSA’s Vice President of Soccer, said “This is an excellent opportunity for our members and we are excited about launching the program with NextGen. Soccer is going through some major transitions at this time with development being the reason behind these moves. Our goal here at USSSA has always been to provide our members with services and programs which benefit each organization, league, club, team and individual player. In creating this program, we are continuing to make sure development and chances of opportunities for our players are available.”
