Boston, Mass. (February 16, 2021) ― As part of a continued effort to enhance the youth soccer experience for its membership, the New England Premiership announced a partnership today with the Soccer Parenting Association. Through the relationship, clubs and parents will be provided valuable resources and information via access to the Soccer Parent Resource Center’s coach and parent education platform.
“The mission of the NEP is to work with and provide support whenever possible to our 23 Member Clubs.
