Excellence in Youth Sports

    NAYS winners 2015 Congratulations to the winners of the Excellence in Youth Sports Award!

    Trophies2Go is proud to sponsor the nonprofit organization National Alliance for Youth Sports (or NAYS).  Since 1981, NAYS has been improving youth sports programs by providing education and resources to volunteer coaches, youth sports administrators, officials and parents.  NAYS provides these programs at the local level to over 3000 community-based organizations across the country and on U.S. military bases worldwide.

    During November 18-21, NAYS hosted their Youth Sports Congress in New Orleans, LA and presented the Excellence in Youth Sports Awards to outstanding youth sports programs.  These winners were chosen from more than 100 youth sports programs that applied from recreation departments, independent sports leagues and military bases around the world.  Not only are these communities providing safe sporting experiences to their players, their focus on providing quality training to their volunteer coaches helped them stand out among the other submissions.
