is the official blog of the California Youth Soccer Association
Co-State Registrar, Marc Pinnell. This blog is intended to be another source of information for our members on the latest news concerning the registration of players, adults and teams within CYSA.
Over the course of my time as the Co-State Registrar of CYSA (and even before that as a member of the Board of Directors), one thing has always bugged me - the lack of communication from the members of CYSA up to the top and back down again. It is really frustrating to make a change or introduce some new program and then a year down the road run into a CYSA member - that I thought was pretty "hip" on CYSA - and find out they know nothing about the change.
Along with my Co-State Registrar, Melinda Rainville, I have spent the past two years plus trying to fix that. The last couple of years have seen some major shifts and changes in CYSA's rules, procedures and general philosophy. And we aren't done yet! But all of it is for naught if no one knows about it. So, with that in mind, my next attempt to "get the word out" is going to be this blog.
In the coming weeks, months and years(?), I will try to bring out items of importance to all of CYSA, not just the Registrars. But the main topic of conversation around here will be registration and things registration related. If you have a question or something that you think I could expound on, please drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will get back to you.
