The CYSA Training Program - Basic Philosophy

The CYSA training program is geared toward providing both kids and coaches a variety of avenues to better teach, learn, play, and enjoy the great game of soccer.

Through camps, specialized clinics, and team training events using outside experienced coaches and organizations, such as Challenger Sports, we give the kids the skills to become better players.

Through specialized clinics and coaching courses, run by experienced coaches, we provide the tools for our coaches to teach the game better and make it more enjoyable for the players.

The training program is an ongoing and evolving program. I am always looking at different and new ways to better the program and provide our kids and coaches with as many useful tools as possible.
