The Program Services site is a resource center for local youth association leadership. Its goal is to provide local associations with the tools necessary to deliver the best youth sports experience in their community. These include growth and retention programs that associations can easily apply in their own structure.

We want to capitalize on the excitement and broad exposure of the Olympic Games. The last post-Olympic season (2010-11) had a 15% increase in new 8 & under players. This was the largest increase in new players in the past 15 years.
