    We have two great workshops happening this spring for one weekend in Manhattan, KS. You will not want to miss them.

    The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) will conduct a special Academy for Youth Sports Administrators in Manhattan on February 29, 2016.  

    Arm your professional staff with the information, resources and tools necessary to ensure safe and positive youth sports for your programs as well as the programs offered by volunteers/parents within your community. 

    NAYS one day training allows participants to complete on-site training and then the certification process online.  The mission of NAYS seeks to make the sports experience safe, fun and healthy for ALL children, promoting the value and importance of sports and physical activities in the emotional, physical, social and mental development of youth.  More information is available on this training at www.nays.org/academy

    Pre-Registration is Required. Register here. This course will be offered on Monday, February 29th.

    Concussion Summit:

    One of the biggest topics in 2015 about sports was concussions. It's been addressed in movies, the media, the pros and the amateurs. Maybe you are wondering what is our role in concussion prevention and youth recreation sports? We are very excited to host a Concussion Summit in Manhattan, KS on March 1, 2016. We will have leading professionals in the athletic and medical field discussing what is a concussion, what is common protocol, concussion resources and ideas for policies to implement in your community. The location for the concussion summit is the Kansas State University Football Stadium (2201 Kimball Ave, Manhattan, KS 66502.) Cost for Concussion Summit: $20 member and $30 nonmember
