CYSA strives to be an integral part of our community. Our goal is to develop and enhance the skills and maturity of our participants. We hope to produce kids with a true gift for soccer and a love for the game.
Modern soccer rules invoke a sense of sportsmanship that CYSA believes in and fosters. We expect our players to respect the laws of the game, officials, team mates and competitors. We expect our players, spectators and parents to be generous in winning and graceful in losing.
Our club is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and most of our coaches are parent volunteers. Please join us for the Covington experience.
CYSA supports the upcoming Recreational District 10 proposed new millage on the ballot May 3rd, 2014. This would be a new 4 mil tax. 1.5 mils would be used for capital improvements to the existing Covington recreation park on highway 190 bypass. 2.5 mils would be used to fund operations and maintenance of recreational facilities, administrative and program management, utilities, field and facility upkeep and repairs. CYSA would be included in an agreement to manage the district's soccer program, upgrade and maintain the CYSA fields on Penn Mill Road.
