NAYS welcomes new member organizations


The National Alliance for Youth Sports is pleased to welcome several outstanding groups that have become its newest Member Organizations, joining more than 2,500 others nationwide who are committed to providing the best and safest experiences for youth in their communities.

Joining the NAYS family are:

Blackshear-Pierce County Recreation Department – Georgia

Livingston Recreation Department – Montana

City of Tucker Parks and Recreation – Georgia

Pathway Education Sports Academy - Georgia

By becoming official NAYS Member Organizations, these organizations are training and educating their coaches through the acclaimed NAYS Coach Training program that is available online as well as on-site. The training features insights from some of the most respected coaches around the country, including Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, Rutgers’ Vivian Stringer, North Carolina’s Roy Williams, Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon, Kansas City Royals manager Mike Matheny, and many more.  

“NAYS offers high quality trainings for our youth coaches,” said Andy Ballinger, Sports Program Coordinator at the Livingston Recreation Department in Montana. “The training goes beyond common sense concepts to really improve a coach’s understanding of their role in youth athletics. We expect to see a bump in the quality of coaches we are putting into our programs.”

NAYS Member Organizations have access to a wide range of tools and resources to improve their youth sports programs: trainings for coaches, parents, league directors and officials; coach evaluations through NAYS’ unique Coach Rating System; and volunteer accountability by adherence to the NAYS Code of Ethics.

There is also a terrific line-up of FREE online programs for members to take advantage of to enhance their knowledge in a variety of areas impacting youth sports, including Sudden Cardiac Arrest Training, Protecting Against Abuse Training, Bullying Prevention Training, and more.
