Youth Soccer Month
US Youth Soccer is the largest member of the United States Soccer Federation, the governing body for soccer in the United States. US Youth Soccer is a nationwide body of over 600,000 volunteers and administrators, with over 300,000 dedicated and mostly volunteer coaches. US Youth Soccer registers over 3 million youth players between the ages of five and nineteen, and is made up of 55 member State Associations. In September 2012, the National Youth Soccer Month campaign celebrated its tenth year of educating the public about the joys, rewards and benefits of playing youth soccer, and offers a variety of resources to get involved.
Americaneagle.com already had created a custom platform for US Youth Soccer (USYS), but for Youth Soccer Month, a special site was needed to carry the month-long campaign’s unique message. The site is an informational hub not only the public, but also for the organizations within USYS. Americaneagle.com provided an arsenal of tools to help USYS promote Youth Soccer Month, including a document library, events tool, a multi-site platform, and a twitter feed integration.
