Washington youth sports administrator joins inaugural CYSA Leadership Committee

CYSA Leadership Committee is first of its kind to unify youth sports administration
The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) is proud to announce the formation of an inaugural CYSA Leadership Committee. The committee consists of Rick Bruya, recreation coordinator at Auburn Parks and Recreation and Certified Youth Sports Administrator (CYSA), as well as other CYSAs from around the world, dedicated to operating youth sports programs with integrity and professionalism.
The CYSA Leadership Committee is the first of its kind and brings together youth sports administrators to further promote the need for education and professional standards of those overseeing youth sports programs. The Committee will also help guide policy and standards in youth sports programming and administration.
The inaugural CYSA Leadership Committee has 26 founding members from municipal park and recreation agencies, Boys & Girls Clubs and U.S. military youth sports programs.
“I am very excited about being a part of the inaugural CYSA Leadership Committee,” said Bruya. “I’ve had involvement with my state association but now I have the opportunity to be part of this national level leadership committee for youth sports and can’t wait to get started.”
Youth sports administrators play a crucial role across the youth sports landscape. They are responsible for tasks like upholding the program’s youth sports philosophy, volunteer and parent management, conflict resolution, assessing insurance and risk management, program evaluation and marketing. The CYSA curriculum, offered through the Academy for Youth Sports Administrators, has certified more than 3,000 professionals and educates youth sports administrators on these topics and more.
Administrators with the CYSA credential are highly regarded because they complete the necessary training and continuing education requirements to fulfill the duties of their position. Training for these professionals is the key to raising the level of professionalism in youth sports and setting the standard for successful youth sports in each community.
“The CYSA Leadership Committee is a game changer for today’s youth sports,” said Lisa Licata, director of professional youth sports administrator programs at NAYS. “There needs to be a CYSA in every community – a leader equipped to handle these topics, oversee the community’s entire youth sports operation and enforce a positive youth sport philosophy on behalf of the children. We are happy to have Rick as part of the CYSA Leadership Committee.”
The CYSA Leadership Committee is an initiative of the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS), America's leading advocate for positive and safe sports and activities for children. The non-profit 501(c)(3) organization is based in West Palm Beach, Fla. Today, NAYS offers programs and services for everyone involved in youth sports experiences, including professional administrators, volunteer administrators, volunteer coaches, officials, parents and young athletes.
