OYSA and Lincoln Youth Soccer are thrilled to host the inaugural Powered By Joy (PBJ) Certification Program which educates parents, coaches and clubs on the theory, science, and practice of FreePlay. Ted Kroeten, Joy of the People Founder (JOTP) and Artistic Director, will be flying in from Minnesota to teach the course. JOTP is a non-profit 501(c)(3) based in Minneapolis – Saint Paul that promotes soccer FreePlay as a means to create healthy kids and strong communities.
This state of the art PBJ Certification Program was created by Ted Kroeten and informed by 10 years of study, learning, and trial and error at Joy of the People. Click here for additional details on this exciting course:
Come hear the amazing story of Joy of the People from the at-risk kids they serve, to JOTP’s recent futsal national championship, to the successes of their players both on and off the pitch. By the end of the course each participant will have learned theories and science of FreePlay, will understand its power, and will have the opportunity to see it in action.
Perhaps most importantly PBJ certified coaches will learn the best practices and secret sauce of FreePlay delivery so that they can take it back to their communities, clubs and families.
