CAMEROON YOUTH SOCCER ORGANIZATION
To provide world-class youth soccer programs that enrich children’s lives.
To develop and deliver quality youth soccer programs which promote a fun, family environment.
What we do
CYSO has various programs for different age groups and athletic needs/capabilities:
CYSO Playground: This program is for kids 3 to 5 years old. CYSO Playground uses group activities, soccer themes and parent participation to develop the fundamental motor skills that prepare kids for all sports.
Core: Core is another name for CYSO’s standard soccer program. The Core program spans the U-6 to U-19 age divisions and is typically separated by gender, although co-ed soccer is offered in some communities at the early age levels and for teen recreational programs.
VIP: The VIP (Very Important Player) program provides a quality soccer experience for kids and adults whose physical or mental disabilities make it difficult to successfully participate on a mainstream team.
What makes us different?
CYSO is a soccer program for the entire family. CYSO’s goal is for every girl and boy stepping on a soccer field to learn soccer and have a fun, fair and safe experience. But it’s also to ensure that the whole family can be involved creating memories that last a lifetime. CYSO's kid-first approach makes us a leader in player development. Everybody likes to win, but developing successful players and people is what's fundamental. We also create a terrific experience for parents who can be involved with their child as a coach or referee. Training is important to ensure that excellent experience, but it’s easy and usually free.
CYSO runs on volunteer power. Volunteers run the local CYSO programs. Every coach, referee, Regional Commissioner – the list goes on – is a volunteer. Even the National Board of Directors and National President are CYSO volunteers. If it wasn’t for the volunteers donating their time every season, CYSO wouldn’t be as successful and far-reaching.
