14th annual Youth Sports Congress a huge success


More than 200 recreation professionals from across the country – and on U.S. military bases worldwide – gathered in New Orleans, La., recently to participate in another incredibly successful Youth Sports Congress.

The Youth Sports Congress is the signature event of the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) that is held annually in conjunction with the Athletic Business Conference and Expo.

Delegates attended sessions led by leading youth sports experts addressing hot topics across the youth sports landscape, including sports specialization and its impact on young athletes.

The Congress also enabled delegates to network with other attendees and share valuable information and insight, as well as check out the always impressive Athletic Business Exhibit Hall featuring hundreds of booths.

Plus, one of the highlights of the Congress every year is the NAYS Awards Session, an inspiring get-together in which the national Coach and Parent of the Year are honored, as well as the Excellence in Youth Sports Award recipients. During this session these incredibly dedicated individuals and organizations share their amazing efforts to change children’s lives by providing top-quality youth sports programming.

NAYS extends a huge thank you to its sponsors: Athletic Business, TeamSnap, Nationwide, Trophies2Go, BSN Sports, Hudl, ZOLL and eTrak-plus. Their tremendous support helped make the 14th annual Congress the best one yet!
