The CYAA is proud to offer two $500 scholarships to one 8th grade boy and one girl graduating from our program. The scholarship is not based on ability but on how player displays leadership, teamwork, religious qualities and overall contributions to the program, its players and in school. Examples include acting as a team leader at practice and act games, volunteering as a coach for our younger teams or helping as a server for the Pasta Dinner Fundraiser. The scholarships will be awarded each May and the deadline to submit applications is March 31, 2019. Players interested in applying must comply with the following:
