Central Academy Youth Soccer Association ( or "CAYSA" )  provides a continuous development program during the spring and summer seasons. They run both indoor and outdoor, and are all methodology training programs (all phases of the training pyramid). Professional grade, certified coaches run the training while players are monitored closely by the club's directors during every session.

Only our experienced, competitive level coaches are allowed to interact with players and run the sessions. This is a great way recreational players who have never had contact with the competitive level to receive more focused attention and get a feel for advanced ball control techniques, hints, and tips from professional grade players. In addition, several guest coaches from the Rowdies, Brazil, and Ireland will be making appearances during the different events to volunteer their time.

Trainers Include: Gerald Morin, guest players from the Tampa Bay Rowdies, former Brazilian player Romildo Sanches, Irish soccer professional Tommy Casey, former Guyanese National player Mark Rodrigues, Detdavong Nouaneasa, Abderazak Haddak, Maghan Morin, Elon McIntosh, Megan Swaine

Special Guest Trainers (expanded):
-    Tampabay Rowdies Professional Soccer Players (Wednesday April 26th)
-    Romildo Sanches, former Brazilian player (Wednesday April 19th)
-    Tommy Casey (To Be Determined)
-    Anthony Wallace (To Be Determined)
-    Mark Rodrigues, former Guyanese National player/FIFA Women's Coach (To Be Determined)

Starting Wednesday, April 26th our guest players from the Rowdies will donate their time to train all participating players. Youths will have twenty minutes to meet, greet, and socialize with the players as well as to ask any questions they have. Rowdies players will offer up their autographs, in addition, privately.

Again on April 29th, Saturday, tickets to Al Lang Stadium will allow CAYSA/PPU Spring soccer participants to enjoy a fun night out including a celebration in the Rowdies' Locker Room and on the field. Joining the Rowdies will be the Richmond Kickers, both working together to sign autographs, answer any questions, and maybe even give out a few hints, tips, or tricks!

Free T-Shirts/jerseys are included with this program, both for the Spring Event Program itself and a commemorative Rowdies T-Shirt.
