Injuries and Prevention

Plano Youth Soccer provides onsite professional athletic training/medical staff at Russell Creek Park and Carpenter Park for weekend games. 


Trainers provide immediate medical attention for game day injuries, but also offer support services such as ankle taping.


PYSA is the only recreational soccer league in DFW to offer medical/athletic training services during league play.
