CAYSA is starting the year with a bang with the second annual CAYSA Convention and Governing Board Meeting. It is an all day event that will take place at Concordia High School in Pflugerville on Saturday, February 1st.  All of the CAYSA presentations are free to all members from parents to club presidents.  (Note the STYSA courses have separate registration and fee requirements listed below).

Come meet representatives from Austin FC who will be available from 9am to 3pm to answer any questions you may have.

The schedule is packed full of informational and educational sessions and is included below; as you will see, there is something for everyone! Please forward to your board and club members, attendance is free!  Need to train your coaches?  Need to certify refs for the spring?  We can help with that too!

Just down the road at the PAYSL fields, a 4v4 Grassroots Coaching class will take place. Registration is available online HERE . Please forward to your coaches. The Grassroots course will be followed by an additional session at Concordia High School regarding Online Resources for the Volunteer Coach.
