Virtual Youth Congress session: Allocating Facilities

Virtual Youth Congress session: Allocating Facilities


Determining who gets field space can be a time-consuming endeavor for today’s youth sports leaders, filled with headaches and aggravation along the way.

At the upcoming Virtual Youth Sports Congress conducted by the National Alliance for Youth Sports on Nov. 4-6, an informative session will explore this complex issue of field allocation in our communities.

Ed Saiz, Recreation Program Coordinator at the City of Henderson in Nevada and a Certified Youth Sports Administrator (CYSA); and Kate Nematollahi, Director of Education Programs at NAYS, will present a session entitled Facility Allocation: Who is Using Your Fields?

The session will review the latest concepts on allocating your athletic facilities in an unbiased, data driven and policy-guided fashion. Saiz and Nematollahi will discuss how to track data to use to your advantage and what types of rules and guidelines your organization can put forth to hold groups accountable for violations. Plus, they’ll cover the economic impact of facility allocation in a community.

This session is part of three outstanding days of Congress sessions to help keep you ahead of the curve during these challenging times where professional development is more important than ever. Plus, it’s the perfect time to maintain or earn your Certified Youth Sports Administrator (CYSA) credential, which more than 4,000 recreation professionals have done.
