Spring/Fall Soccer

CYAA Crusaders Youth Soccer is a recreational soccer program open to boys and girls attending Catholic elementary schools or registered in religious education at a Lancaster County parish. In continuous existence since the mid-1980s, CYAA soccer welcomes kids of all abilities to join teams organized by age and coached by volunteers from different parishes—all of whom must have Diocesan clearances. As a recreational program, our goal is to ensure that every player has fun, learns the fundamental and technical skills of the game and develops teamwork and sportsmanship qualities. There are no tryouts and all players receive ample playing time. 

Our U6 & U8 teams practice in house and compete within the Penn Manor Youth Soccer Program on Saturday mornings. Scores for games are not kept and the focus is on having fun, not the outcome of the game. Our U10 – U15 boys and girls teams participate in the Lancaster Area Recreational Soccer League play against other local clubs in Lancaster County.

We are a Catholic-focused program with a stress on teamwork, sportsmanship and having fun. Thanks to dedicated coaches and many returning players, CYAA Crusaders teams have had success over the years, both in terms of winning matches and also learning discipline and building friendships.
