P5 Sports Affiliate Partnership



(Spring Lake Park and Blaine, MN) – For nearly three decades, the Minnesota Youth Athletic Services (MYAS) has been committed to improving the delivery of youth sports services throughout the state of Minnesota and western Wisconsin, and we intend to continue this commitment. The MYAS, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has always strived to protect and serve the community-based youth sport associations during their designated seasons. We have developed, protected and maintained this community-based programming in Minnesota since 1991. Within youth baseball, we will continue to protect and serve the community-based parent-volunteer youth baseball associations to provide them opportunities and solutions to enhance and grow the game of baseball within the communities they provide service to.

The MYAS/Gopher State Baseball has aligned with P5 Sports in order to provide coach and player clinic opportunities that directly benefit the youth baseball associations that those individuals participate with during the designated community-based season. In conjunction with P5 Sports, our educational division, Trusted Coaches, will present training and education to all youth baseball coaches and players throughout the north and east metro and all the areas around and in between throughout the off-season. This is all a part of our recently implemented Association Team Development and Services within the sports we serve.

“One of the goals within the MYAS mission is to link regional volunteer youth sports programs with others statewide while ultimately, improving the delivery of youth sports services to young athletes, coaches, parents, officials and the associations that serve them.” said Dawson Blanck, MYAS Executive Director. “The entire MYAS team is excited to align with P5 Sports to help us meet those goals within our programs and services we provide, our partners, the parent-volunteer youth baseball associations.  As a leader in youth sports throughout the great state of Minnesota, we want to be proactive and influence participants (youth athletes, coaches, parents, and officials) in a positive way through training and education that will directly benefit them.

In 2015, the MYAS launched Trusted Coaches, a nationwide platform training coaches to maximize the probability that positive things will happen to young athletes. This is accomplished by: 1) Screening coaches through a nationally accredited nationwide criminal background check; 2) giving coaches the tools to be effective; and 3) creating an online National Coaches’ Registry that parents and associations can access. Additionally, Trusted Coaches has created a cutting-edge education program to foster compliance with the new Safe Sport Authorization Act. Information about this program can be found at or @MYASMinnesota and @trustedcoaches on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Ultimately, our goal as an organization is to remain the neutral body that brings all youth sports organizations together in order to create a safe, positive and productive experience for youth athletes in Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
