AYSO and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) have renewed their partnership in an effort to provide great soccer all over the country.
“We are proud to announce the renewal of a partnership between our Association and AYSO,” said Joe Cumming, NSCAA CEO. “We support each others’ goals and values as organizations so we are excited to continue this long time relationship and look forward to implementing more of the many mutual benefits for both organizations.”
Founded in 1941 and based in Kansas City, Kan., the NSCAA has grown into the world’s largest soccer coaches’ organization that serves members at every level of the game. Their mission is to educate coaches, encourage excellence and serve the soccer community.
Each year at the NSCAA Convention, AYSO presents the Robert W. "Robby" Robinson High School Long Term Service Award, which is given to a person who brings interscholastic soccer to new heights through his or her long-term dedication to the game.
This special award is named after a Philadelphia-area high school coach who has touched virtually every aspect of the NSCAA.
“We’re very pleased to continue this great relationship with the NSCAA,” said Lynn Berling-Manuel, AYSO's Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re also excited to continue our support of the Robby Robinson Award. We honor all the coaches and players that carry on the rich tradition of the high school student athlete.”
