This year’s Youth Sports Congress – set for Nov. 7-10 in New Orleans – will kick off with a motivational keynote by Judson Laipply titled Don’t Change – Evolve.

Laipply has been speaking and training audiences all over the world for the last 20 years and has appeared on The Today Show, Good Morning America and Oprah, among many others. He is the world’s first YouTube celebrity, as his “Evolution of Dance” video was the first video to hit 100 million views, and it has well over 1 billion impressions.

Combining comedy and content, his can’t-miss session will tackle leadership, evolving, and more.

Delegates will learn how to understand the difference between managing change and leading evolution; gain a new perspective toward struggle and appreciate the role struggle plays in growth and evolution; and articulate the role choice has neurologically in electric brain function as it pertains to emotional release.

This session will also recognize the winners of the prestigious Excellence in Youth Sports Award as well as the NAYS Volunteer Coach of the Year and the NAYS Parent of the Year; and lead into a fun-filled networking reception.

Significant savings are available now through early bird registration that is under way.

This incredible training enables Certified Youth Sports Administrators to maintain their prestigious CYSA credential by earning continuing education; while others can take advantage to complete the Academy for Youth Sports Administrators to earn their CYSA designation.

Also included in the General Registration fee for those attendees who have yet to earn their CYSA credential is an opportunity to participate in the special Onsite Academy for Youth Sports Administrators, simultaneously scheduled so participants can attend both the Congress and Academy during their time in New Orleans.

CYSA candidates participate in the Academy, which provides a foundation of essential information, as well as resources and wonderful networking opportunities. After the event, CYSA candidates will be provided access to the Online Academy to complete the certification process.

Attendees also have access to two outstanding Athletic Business keynote addresses, the Expo and welcome reception. The first keynote will be presented by Randy Hetrick, who will share the 10 most important leadership lessons he learned as a Navy SEAL; and Ryan Holiday – a well-known columnist, author and motivational speaker – will share how to overcome frustrations and turn adversity into advantage during his keynote. 

The Expo features more than 250 exhibitors, where you'll meet product experts displaying every component for any of your needs. NAYS sponsors have their own pavilion where you can meet great supporters of NAYS programs.

The always fun Athletic Business welcome reception will feature live music and great food, and is the perfect place to connect with AB Show conference attendees, exhibitors and speakers, as well as those attending the Youth Sports Congress.
