CYAA is a non-profit ministry that provides an uplifting alternative for youth athletes ages 4-14 years old. Participants develop fundamental skills in the younger age divisions, while growing and being more competitive in the challenging older age divisions. At every stage, participants will hear the word of God, with coaches sharing devotions and life lessons during practices, and Center Circle devotions for all families on Game Day.
In light of the COVID-19 situation. CYAA has chosen to move its basketball season start date back to May 2, 2020 for Divisions 1 – K and May 8, 2020 for High School Division. This will take our season through June, ending for all divisions the weekend of June 26, 2020. We understand that this situation is fluid and changing daily. It is our intention to keep all our athletes, families and volunteers safe and reduce the risk of any illness or injury. It is our hope that by starting at this later date, the COVID-19 situational risk level will have resolved, and life would start to return to a normal state.
Please use caution and take in mind CYAA’s recommendations when holding a practice. CYAA still recommends all practices be on hold. CYAA recommends practices for all divisions start no earlier than April 18, 2020. If you do hold a practice, please use all precautionary measures to lower the risk to any player and their families. Most public parks and schools have been shut down in the areas of Ontario and Chino through Mid-April or later. We ask that you adhere to this recommendation considering the situation. Our priority is the athletes and their families.
Again, we understand this situation is fluid and changing daily. As developments arise and we are made aware of them we will respond accordingly and as promptly as possible. Remember, God is in control. We may not always understand His vision, but we must trust with faith that He is in control. He carries us through the hardest days even when we don’t feel His presence. He is faithful and trustworthy.
“For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!” “Instead, seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” Luke 12:23-24, 31-32 ESV.
