The 2012 Excellence in Youth Sports Award application is now open and the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) and Athletic Business
magazine are looking for Chapters that are “lighting the way to excellence.”
Each year the Excellence Committee, comprised of NAYS and Athletic Business staff, review hundreds of applications from youth sports programs across the country and from military bases worldwide. They’re looking for programs that lead the way in conducting diverse activities that focus on providing safe and positive experiences for all participants. Is your program one?
Applications are judged on several criteria, including what the organization does to educate their administration, volunteer coaches, game officials and parents, as well as how well they demonstrate that they embrace a child-centered recreational sports philosophy that is aimed at providing a positive and safe experience for all youth, among other areas.
