SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES


certification for youth sports administrators live trainingHistorically, NAYS has offered in-person educational opportunities to assist CYSA candidates as they complete the certification process. Comprehensive sessions including group discussions, exercises and role playing are presented by a professional faculty. Short breaks are taken periodically throughout the Onsite Academy to give participants plenty of networking opportunities.

The format and duration of the Onsite Academy varies depending upon location. For example, Special One-Day Academies are offered in conjunction with some state park and recreation conferences, as stand-alone training opportunities and each year a Special Academy is offered simultaneously with the NAYS Youth Sports Congress at the Athletic Business Show.

At the conclusion of any Onsite Academy, participants are required to complete the Online Academy to earn the CYSA designation.

NAYS also offers Bonus Webinar + Online Academy experiences to help prepare candidates for the certification process while providing an additional educational and networking experience. After the live 3-hour Bonus Webinar, participants are provided access to the Online Academy for Youth Sports Administrators to complete the certification process to earn the CYSA credential. There is no additional fee for the Bonus webinars but each session will have limited class size.
