A New Years Message
From Our President:
As we approach a new year and decade, I would like to take the time to thank the CASA Board for all the countless volunteer hours they have put in to make sure the youth in our community have opportunities to participate in recreational sports. The road hasn’t always been easy, but you believe in what CASA stands for and all the young athletes that have benefited by participating.
Thank you to all our coaches, who have volunteered their time, to share their knowledge of these sports over the years. Your trainings, hold practices, and encourage these young people.

CASA – Our Mission Statement / Purpose
Welcome to the offiCial CASA Sports website. We have recently partnered with Cadillac News Design & Development to produce this new website. We are very proud of the new design and hope that It will better information you about our organization.
We are dedicated to providing a fun, safe, educational environment for your children.
As a former member of CASA. I wish to commend you for volunteering your time and efforts towards area youth. Without your support, the CASA program would not exist.
A vital part of the program includes the safety of all children involved. This is a major concern for CASA. local police and the community in general. One way we can ensure this safety is by conducting a background check on all members of CASA This is done through the auspices of the Community Child Watch program This program is state sanctioned and supported locally by the Cadillac Area Schools, law enforcement and CASA In fact, CASA has adopted this program as a condition of becoming a volunteer.
