Take the Pledge to Keep Youth Sports Positive

The City of Raleigh has teamed up with the National Alliance of Youth Sports (NAYS) to train all of our head coaches involved in our youth sports leagues. In partnership with NAYS, we are supporting their Parents Association for Youth Sports (PAYS) by promoting their sports parent pledge.

Similar to how a drop of water ripples throughout a puddle, acts of positivity in youth sports can affect a team's environment and spread throughout the league - and even the whole community! It only needs one person to start. Will that person be you? Sign up for the Sports Parent Pledge for a free six-part email series packed with resources and tips you can use to be a positive change in youth sports!” Please enter City of Raleigh as the League Name.

There is no cost associated with taking the pledge, however there is a fee to become a PAYS member.
