Prior to taking the Online Examination, all candidates must either participate in an Onsite Academy and/or must review all materials that are available within the Online Academy Modules. Upon successful completion of the Academy Exam, administrators will earn the Certified Youth Sports Administrator (CYSA) credential.
When a candidate earns the CYSA credential, it is valid for two years from the date when the last/final exam was graded. During that initial two-year period (called the Initial CYSA Cycle), the CYSA continues to have access to the Online Academy. This area of the Online Academy is called the CYSA Only Area. During the entire Initial CYSA Cycle, CYSAs are encouraged to continually log in to the CYSA Only Area to review information and participate in the CYSA Only Features that include the CYSA Forum, the CYSA Share Area, etc.
To maintain the CYSA credential (and extend the CYSA credential beyond the Initial CYSA Cycle), candidates must earn at least 10 hours of continuing education/professional development related to the field by the end of the initial two-year period. Continuing education MUST relate to the field of youth sports administration.
Upon completion of any continuing education, the CYSA must receive official, original documentation of participation containing the following information: your name, attendance date, title of course or program and contact hours. CYSAs must submit CEU documentation and CEU Processing Fees to NAYS for review prior to the end of the Initial CYSA Cycle.
Additional detailed information about the CYSA credential and the CEU Guidelines are provided to CYSAs within the CYSA Only Area of the Online Academy. CYSA LOGIN HERE.
