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.

“We chose to use NAYS for our coaches’ training because it is affordable and convenient,” said Michael Sikorski, Co-Soccer Commissioner for the Chesterfield Township Athletic Association in New Jersey. “The coaches like that they can take the training at any time, and I like that I have access to view training completions without coaches having to send us certificates. Also, the NAYS Coach membership provides a lot of additional resources for coaches to refer to when coaching their teams.”

Adds Manuel Narváez, Network Athletic Director for Victory Charter Schools in Florida: “We love the opportunity of training for our coaches. We want to see that coaches learn how to work in a diversified system. We want to see that they focus their teaching in our diverse population, being able to work with different sector's needs, and be able to provide a holistic approach to successfully deal with the students’ physical, social, emotional, cognitive and behavioral challenges. We want everybody to participate in an integrated learning format in order to be successful in sports and in life!”


The acclaimed NAYS Coach Training program 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, Tulane women’s basketball coach Lisa Stockton, Kansas City Royals manager Mike Matheny, and many more.

“Our club was looking for a training certification program for our youth football coaches that is both thorough and efficient,” said Lyle Smith, Director of Football Operations for Liberty Junior Football in Washington.

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.
