The mission of the Chesapeake Athletic Association is to develop leadership, high moral character, sportsmanship, and nurture a love for the Art of Athletics through organized and spirited Athletic competition.
Five years ago , two people dedicated to the community and its youth decided that some extracurricular activities were needed in the Chesapeake area. With almost twenty years of experience between them, they noticed that Chesapeake needed more than Parks and Recreation could offer.
In 2004 Chesapeake's first Pop Warner Association in Chesapeake, VA was born!
Pop Warner football has been around since the inception of the league in 1929 by
founder Joseph Tomlin as a four-team conference in Northeast Philadelphia. Since then, participation has increased to over 240,000 youth nationwide. Due to their hard work, Chesapeake is one of its newest members.
From the desk of Geral Stukes, President
We are a non-profit youth athletic association with tax exemption status (501-3C) in the Chesapeake, VA area. The Chesapeake Athletic Association ("CAA") staff is currently comprised of eight active people. These dedicated eight people are responsible for providing young children with the best programs and equipment possible. Our association has completed a very successful season in the Pop Warner football league and is looking forward to many more. Our numbers are growing daily and we are looking forward to a more prosperous season this year!
The ultimate goal for the Chesapeake Athletic Association ("CAA") is to have athletic programs in all sports arenas so that we can maintain year round programs for our community's youth. The youth of Chesapeake are a priority to our association and any type of support, financially or logistically will assist to attain our goals.
