Session Description:

The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) will offers this Academy for professionals pursuing the Certified Youth Sports Administrator (CYSA) credential. CPRS and NAYS believe that every community should have at least one CYSA overseeing organized youth sports programs.

After a full day of hands on training, participants will complete the certification process via the Online Academy system. This allows participants to experience both the Onsite and Online Academy and to network with other youth sports professionals from around the state.

Completing the Academy gives youth sports administrators a strong foundation of knowledge on issues pertaining to overseeing youth sports programs in today’s ever-changing environment. Some of the topics covered through the Academy are youth sports philosophy, professional development, volunteer management, child abuse prevention, parent management, conflict resolution, insurance and risk management, program evaluation and marketing. More than 2,500 professionals from around the world have earned this important certification.
