Recognizing the commitment it takes to progress to the highest level of competition, the CYSA Board of Directors has allocated $70,000 in stipends that will be issued to the players attending the US Youth Soccer Region IV Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico with their CYSA State Cup champion and wildcard teams.
The stipends for the athletes attending Far West Regionals is just one of the various outreach programs through which CYSA helps fund soccer opportunities for players at all levels of play.
California Youth Soccer Association views each of our members as part of our extended soccer family. During the course of 40-plus years of continuous operation as the largest State Association in the United States , CYSA 's service-oriented approach places an emphasis on providing the very best programs to serve ALL levels of youth soccer players. CYSA offers programs that are designed to provide a soccer experience regardless of the skill-set of the player, including our TOPSoccer program for players with special challenges, Soccer Start for the economically disadvantaged player, CYSA - Cal Soccer League for every competitive level team, Recreation Programs for the players who are the foundation of our organization and CYSA Cups (State Cup, Presidents Cup, Association Cup and Founders' Cup) with an event to serve every level of play.
CYSA is dedicated to the well-being of youngsters and will continue to encourage families to use soccer as a vehicle through which young people can achieve whatever is possible. We are honored that CYSA coaches and administrators have the opportunity to teach young people to pursue victory with honor and to instill in them character, sportsmanship, integrity and understanding the value of diversity.
We congratulate the following CYSA teams and wish them all the best in their journey to Far West Regionals and beyond.
