youth sports conference

2021 Session Proposal Form


General Proposal Tips

  • The deadline to submit educational session proposals is March 31, 2021 and all proposals must be submitted online.
  • The 2021 NAYS Youth Sports Congress is tentatively scheduled to be held on October 27-30, 2021. Assuming federal health regulations deem it safe to host in-person events, the Congress will again co-locate with the Athletic Business Show in San Antonio, TX.
  • Captivating speakers are encouraged to submit innovative proposals that can be formatted as a lecture, group-discussion, panel or other thoughtfully designed session.
  • We are looking for presentations about current topics, issues, trends, research and resources available to improve or add value to youth sports programs at the local level.
  • The audience primarily consists of youth sports administrators (not volunteer coaches and parents), who serve as conduits to share information, resources and tools with volunteer coaches, parents and other youth sports providers in their communities. Sessions should be applicable to a wide range of youth sports administrators (public entity recreation departments, military youth sports, community-based non-profits and volunteer sports associations).
  • Speakers may not sell or promote any product, service, or publication during any presentation. Conference sponsorships are available to distribute a company’s promotional literature to attendees or in the exhibit hall. Email yscongress@nays.org for more information.
  • NAYS does not pay honorarium for speakers.

Please submit the form below to be considered for presenting at the 2021 NAYS Youth Sports Congress no later than March 31, 2021.
