 A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to all of our Sport Coordinators and their teams of over-achieving volunteers. These folks invest a significant amount of time into our community and without them, none of this would be possible. Thank You! 

Exciting News! Giant Food Community Bag Program!
We are so excited to share that CYA has been selected to be a part of the Giant Food Community Bag Program, which is designed to make it easy for customers to contribute to their local community while supporting the environment.

For the month of January, each time a reusable $2.50 Community Bag is purchased at the Giant Food located in the Greenbrier Shopping Center, $1 will be donated to CYA!

This is a great way to raise awareness, support the environment and fundraise for our cause. Let’s get started! We can begin by spreading the news to our friends and family. Call, send emails, and post on social media. The more people who learn about the program and purchase the Community Bag during the month of January, the more money we will raise.

To learn more about this program, please visit Giantfood.bags4mycause.com
Winter Baseball/Softball Clinics at the Fieldhouse!
The CYA Babe Ruth league is hosting Winter Workout sessions and a Softball Pitching Clinic at the Fieldhouse beginning January 6th! Session size will be limited due to space constraints.

Coach Gould has provided pitching caps/lessons for over 20 years. Coach Gould has over 50 years of experience playing fastpitch softball including experience playing/pitching in National and Regional Championship tournaments. Coach Gould was elected to both the Greater Washington Fastpitch Hall of Fame and the Washington DC Fastpitch Sunday League Hall of Fame.

Session #2 Starts TODAY!

Play Safely at the CYA Fieldhouse!
Our staff at the CYA Fieldhouse is doing a terrific job in making sure all of our members and user groups are kept safe. In order to support them, we have some simple procedures in place that absolutely need to be followed by anyone who is taking part in recreational activities at the FH.

First and foremost, we are not permitting spectators in the building at this time. If your kids are playing at the Fieldhouse, drop them off at the front door and wait in the parking lot for them to finish their activity. We know... it's a bummer that you can't watch your kids play but things will change soon enough and for now, we are focused on making sure all of our kids are kept safe.

For a list of things we do at the Fieldhouse to keep everyone safe, follow the link below.

Thank You For Supporting CYA Sports!
