CYA is celebrating our 40th Anniversary this year (1971 - 2011) and as we reflect on the past four decades, we come to appreciate all of the things that truly make CYA unique and special.
As a volunteer run organization, it is often difficult to carve out enough time to organize a clear definition of who we are and where we want to go as a youth program. We are often so busy making sure teams are set, fields are lined, schedules are posted, referee’s are assigned, etc... that we don’t establish the necessary pathways to attain the overall objectives that we hope to achieve.
While we take time to celebrate our 40 years of providing a terrific program to the residents of the Chantilly area, we are focusing our efforts on re-defining who we are and what we stand for. Of course, this is a lofty exercise yet as the youth sports community becomes more advanced, we at CYA believe that we must establish a philosophical foundation that will define future generations of our players.
Together, we can work to provide a program for our kids that is based in education and affords them the opportunity to achieve the highest level of success in whatever athletic endeavor they desire. Most of all, CYA Sports are FUN and we are committed to making sure that everyone who ever puts on a Purple Jersey will reflect fondly on the time they spent with CYA.
Here’s to another 40 years!
