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.

Grassroots Licenses

*Grassroots Coaching Mandate
Starting in the fall of 2023, all travel coaches will need at least a US Soccer Grassroots license in order to get a pass to coach within any of ENYYSA’S leagues.
