Our Mission
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.

Coaching Course Registration
U.S. Soccer has announced some new and exciting changes in Coaching Education nationwide. The changes include the introduction of a new pathway called the "Grassroots Coaching Education Pathway". The Grassroots Pathway will focus on helping novice coaches.  With the creation of the Grassroots path, the current US Soccer F-License and E-License will no longer be taught or be a part of the U.S. Soccer Coaching Education curriculum. For current holders of these licenses, U.S. Soccer and Louisiana Soccer will continue to recognize both as national licenses that meet all prerequisites and or coaching license standards.

US Soccer Digital Coaching Center
All coaches who register for any Coaching Education course must first register with US Soccer's Digital Coaching Center (DCC). The DCC not only enables US Soccer to centralize all course registrations across the country but also provides coaches with valuable resources. All coaches who intend to coach a competitive team in Louisiana are required to register in the DCC before they can be placed on the team roster. To access the DCC

Description of the US Soccer Grassroots Pathway
The Grassroots Pathway has been introduced as part of the overall U.S. Soccer Coaching Education structure to permit easy access and entry points. Four new Modules are offered in the Grassroots Pathway. Each of these Modules are designed specifically for a youth soccer format. Each format generally reflects the age of the players. The formats are
4 v. 4     7 v. 7     9 v. 9     11 v. 11
The new structure will allow a coach to enter the pathway in one of two separate ways:
  1. the candidate may take the Online (OL) course or
  2. take the In-Person (IP) course
The online and in-person courses will be treated as two separate licenses. For Example, the 4 v. 4 on-line course will be treated as a separate License as the 4 v. 4 in-person course.
The new in-person licenses to be offered by South Texas YSA are four (4) hours in length. Each IP course contains two hours in the classroom and two hours on the field. The highlight of the IP course is that it offers coaches the ability to have hands-on experience learning with an instructor and players in a realistic environment and promote best practices in coaching education.
Effect of New Pathway on License Requirements in Louisiana
LSA requires that anyone who wants to coach a team in the Louisiana Competitive Soccer League must possess a US Soccer E-License or the equivalent as determined by the LSA Technical Director (305.2.1). Until further notice, present E-Licenses will be honored without the need to take any of the US Soccer Grassroots Modules.
Going forward, an E-License shall be defined as successfully completing at least 2 in-person Grassroots Modules and 1 on-line Grassroots Module. One of the in-person Grassroots Modules must be the 11 v. 11 Module. 
A coach who possesses an F-License will be considered to have completed one on-line Module.   


All participants that register, attend and pass the course will be qualified grade 8 referees.  This
allows the referee to center or AR any game at club or tournament levels. Courses are held
around the state in August. Most of our referees take the course with the Mandeville Soccer Club
(MSC) or the Hammond Club (STYSA). Access the registration form online at the LSA web site
The next course at Hammond will be July 28-29, at Slidell will be August 18-19, at MSC on August 25-26, and Covington/Madisonville on Sept 1-2, 2018
  • The course fee is $50.  Pay online when you register on the LSA Web site
  • No walk ups will be accepted; Any person 12 years or older may attend.
  • Arrive a few minutes early to get checked in.
  • Bring a lunch and/or snacks, paper and something to write with.   
As a USSF and LSA requirement, all clubs must have a USSF Registered Assignor to assign all matches.  While being a referee is a benefit for attendance, this course is open to all individuals.  No prior playing, coaching, or officiating experience is required to register as an assignor.  This course will be a hybrid course with an online portion and an in-person session.  The in-person session will be held on Sunday, August 12, 2018 time and location based on those registered.  Cost of the clinic is $30 plus the USSF registration fee of $15.  Pre-registration is required and the online components should be completed prior to attending the course.  To register please visit
