youth sports conference


Every year, sponsors offer their support and services to help make the Youth Sports Congress possible. Attendees often have the opportunity to visit their booth in the exhibit hall or access their website through their member area to hear more about the products and services they offer NAYS members.

Beyond booth space, NAYS is seeking sponsors for our national awards. Express your gratitude to the individuals who implement quality sports programming on a community level by presenting our Excellence in Youth Sports, Volunteer Coach of the Year, or Youth Sports Parent of the Year award.

If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities for the 2020 Youth Sports Congress, please view our Sponsorship Opportunities and fill out the interest form at the bottom of this page.
