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.

Each year WYSA honors outstanding contributors to youth soccer in our state based on recommendations from our members. The entire membership is encouraged to submit nominations of those deserving of recognition for their efforts in coaching, volunteering or administration. Awards will be presented at the WYSA AGM in March 2021. State recipients are eligible to be named Midwest Region winners.
