NAYS League Director Training & Membership Program



Many youth sports programs today are run by a group of volunteers who dedicate an enormous amount of time to the league. Volunteer administrators take on a variety of duties - from being the president of the league, to sitting on the Board of Directors in positions like treasurer, equipment manager or fundraising/sponsorship coordinator, just to name a few. Many have little or no formal training in the administration of youth sports. Also, these volunteers may also be personally liable for the actions of the program. For all of the above reasons, NAYS offers the NAYS League Director Training & Membership Program, formerly the National Youth Sports Administrators Association or NYSAA, to specifically provide education and liability protection for individuals who volunteer to be part of a league's leadership team.

The training and membership fee is $45.


Youth sports administrators participate in the interactive NAYS League Director online training, successfully complete each of eight section quizzes and sign the NAYS Code of Ethics for League Directors.

The training topics address issues that administrators face every day from managing volunteer coaches to marketing and fundraising.
