For 100 years, in good times and bad, The CCBA has had a special commitment to helping children be active, learn sports skills, and have fun. Memberships for young people and families are discounted. We also operate a free drop-in center for elementary school-aged youngsters. In addition, our outdoor park-which has basketball and tennis courts, play structures, a picnic-pavilion, and a playing-field-is open to the public at no charge.
The Youth Scholarship Fund makes it possible for youngsters to take swim lessons, play on the basketball team, enjoy summer camp, participate in fitness programs, or workout with weight training and cardiovascular exercise equipment (please see age requirements).
