For Immediate Release
VYSA NAMES NATURAL GRASS ADVISORY GROUP™ AS OFFICIAL NATURAL GRASS FIELD ADVISOR OF VYSA AND THE PUBLIX VIRGINIA SOCCER TRAINING CENTER

 
Spotsylvania County, Va. April 19, 2018

The Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA) announced today that they have entered into an exclusive partnership with Natural Grass Advisory Group™ (NGAG). As a VYSA partner, NGAG
will support VYSA field maintenance with supervision and regular surface testing of Publix Virginia Soccer Training Center (

The partnership provides NGAG with sponsorship assets with VYSA and at PVSTC.

The partnership between VYSA and NGAG ensures that PVSTC fields remain among the best in the USA. The partnership also will have a positive impact for VYSA clubs across the state as VYSA and NGAG develop best practices and standards for field improvement and safety. This reinforces VYSA’s focus on field safety and athlete experience with the surfaces and positions VYSA as a leader by being one of the first state associations in the youth sports landscape to take proactive action in developing standards for grass field surfaces.
 
VYSA President Denise Edwards: “We are pleased to enter into this ground-breaking agreement with the Natural Grass Advisory Group™ and look forward to sharing their expertise with our membership.”

Natural Grass Advisory Group™ Founder and Lead Advisor Jerad Minnick: “It is so exciting to
grow our relationship with VYSA, building up from our initial work together in support of the 
PVSTC establishment. VYSA is undoubtedly one of the most forward-thinking organizations in youth sports. So it is a privilege to be affiliated with VYSA and to be able to help VYSA members make their grass fields better and strong while also increasing usage time.
