Rockdale Youth Soccer Association announced that Steve Keiss has joined the soccer team as General Manager of the facility. “When RYSA opened in 1972 with two fields, there were only two seasons of soccer, Fall and Spring. Now in 2016, the soccer complex with 7 outdoor fields and an indoor soccer facility, runs almost 365 days a year. We knew we needed to find someone to oversee the day-to-day operations of the complex.” – Doug Nangle, President of RYSA
Steve joins RYSA with an extensive 40+ career in all aspects of soccer management. Keiss, currently a Select and Academy coach at RYSA, was previously the Director of Coaching at Blue Springs Soccer Club and the Facility Manager at Creekside Sports Center. He also is the current Vice President of Youth at Georgia Soccer Association. Steve also holds an USSF A Coaching license as well as USSF National Youth license.
"I am very excited being named the inaugural GM of one of Georgia's most established youth and adult clubs, and I look forward to working for the families and staff of RYSA. Creating the general manager's position for a soccer club is an innovative and brilliant move to bring all aspects of RYSA together, and I am honored by the assignment." – Steve Keiss
