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.

Greg Carnovale

Welcome to Greg Carnovale, who has agreed to form and coach a U16 competitive boys team at CYSA in the fall of 2014. Coach Greg is the Atheletic Director at Christ Epicopal School and the coach of many CES teams including soccer. He was a team mate of Coach Tony  Judice and played on several of the U17/18 championship teams at CYSA in the last decade coached by Coach Hector Vasquez. Coach Greg received a soccer scholarship to Guilford College in North Carolina and earned a degree in Sports Management. He was team captain and an all conference player. He received his coaching licenses in North Carolina, coached in the state Olympic Development Program (ODP) and at the Region III ODP camp in Alabama. He has played for 2 years for the Baton Rouge Capitals, a semi-professional PDL(Professional Development League) team. He's one of the young professionals returning to CYSA with a passion to help the next generation of CYSA players write their own page in Club history.

Tony Judice

Tony Judice, Defender for the New Orleans Jesters. Coach Tony also returns to CYSA in the fall of 2014. We remember him from his playing days on CYSA State Championship teams and his stint with the Baton Rouge Capitals. He has coached for St Paul's High School and our U17 training team several years ago. He is the current trainer and coach for our U12 Tam Bolt and U13 Team United and is another young professional that has returned to CYSA to help develop the next soccer generation. Thanks Coach Tony and GOOD LUCK in the State Tournament!
