The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Symposium Overview

Please view the FAQ below and links at right for detailed information. You may email Mark Moore with questions.

When is the 2021 NCYSA Soccer Symposium?

The Symposium is generally held the weekend AFTER the United Soccer Coaches/USYS National Conventions, and the weekend BEFORE the Super Bowl (providing those dates remain steady).

However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 Symposium will be held over several days/evenings in December and January as a virtual event. Details will be posted on this page later this fall.


Who Attends the Symposium?

The Symposium consists of workshops in the following areas:

  • Administrative (Presidents, Risk Management, D&A, Registration)
  • NCSRA Referees and Assignors
  • NCASA Adult Soccer
  • Coaching Education

The topics are generally attended by invitation from their respective organizations.

Due to the 2021 Symposium being held online, there may be other workshops and classes of interest to our membership. Details coming later this fall.

Is There a Charge for the Symposium?

Most workshops and sessions are free to the attendees/invitees. Please keep checking this page for details.

What Topics are Offered at the Symposium?

Please check the current Symposium Event List for the latest information (to be posted later this fall).

Workshops, mandatory meetings and other topics of interest will be presented over 2 or 3 weeks during the day and evening. All workshops are online.

The Symposium will end with the NCYSA Annual General Meeting. That date will be posted soon.

If the Symposium is virtual, will there still be "Goodie Bags"?

Yes, but it will be done differently this year. Those who normally get goodie bags will get theirs either in the mail prior to the Symposium, or the gifts will be sent electronically.

In addition, there will be door prizes, gifts and trivia questions held during the workshops throughout the event where attendees can win neat prizes.
