The CYSA credential is valid for two years and must be maintained by obtaining continuing education. All CYSAs have continuous access to their Online CYSA Profile within the Online Academy. This area of the Online Academy includes a variety of tools, resources and information designed to assist the CYSA in offering the best possible youth sports program in their local community. Additional detailed information about the CYSA Area and maintaining this certification can be found on the Once a CYSA page or the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
Earning the CYSA allows youth sports administrators to demonstrate their professional connection to the field while allowing them to network with other CYSAs from around the country and world. This certification provides a fundamental understanding of how quality youth sports programs operate and also serves as a professional development opportunity, resume builder and networking forum.
More than 5,300 professionals have earned their CYSA to date and many organizations (including the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force as well as many public entities) require that all Youth Sports Directors earn the CYSA credential.
