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.
