We are excited to announce that the CYSA Summer Camp is now open for registration! This camp is perfect for young beginners, ages 4 to 7, who are eager to learn how to play softball.

Throughout the camp, participants will engage in fun and age-appropriate activities, relays, and drills designed to teach the fundamental skills of softball, including throwing, catching, fielding, and hitting. The camp will be led by players of the Chaska High School Softball program. 

The camp sessions will take place on August 6th and August 8th from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Chaska Community Park.

Lenzen Chevrolet Buick Sponsorship

We are pleased to announce that the Chaska Youth Softball Association has partnered with Lenzen Chevrolet Buick through the Chevy Youth Baseball & Softball program! This program will provide our league with a sponsorship check, new equipment, and a fundraising opportunity.

The Chevy Youth Baseball & Softball Test Drive Fundraising Opportunity is a program by which Lenzen Chevrolet Buick will provide $25 on behalf of every customer that visits the dealership and takes a test drive in any one of the new Chevrolet vehicles in stock, up to a maximum of $500. Lenzen Chevrolet Buick is also offering a $500 discount to any CYSA direct family member on any new and pre-owned vehicle purchased at Lenzen Chevrolet Buick between now and June 30, 2024 (see dealership for more details).

We need your help to reach this goal! Whether or not you’re in the market for a new vehicle, stop by the dealership and mention you are looking to take a test drive to support Chaska Youth Softball Association through the Chevy Youth Baseball & Softball program.  At the program’s end, Lenzen Chevrolet Buick will provide the Chaska Youth Softball Association with a check for the total number of validated test drives.

Hurry in as the test-drive program officially ends on June 30, 2024, or whenever the supplies are exhausted.

If you couldn't make it to the parent meeting on Sunday, March 10th, or if you need a recap, please use the link below.
