The Colorado Association of Recreational Athletics (CARA) began in 1970 to provide the recreational athletes of Colorado an opportunity to compete with teams from other municipalities. When CARA began it was mainly an adult sports association. While CARA still offers adult sport programs, it has become mainly a youth sports organization offering tennis, track & field, cross country, gymnastics, lacrosse, swim and dive programs. CARA also proudly sponsors special events such as the Colorado Rockies Baseball Skills Challenge and the CARA Basketball Skills Challenge.
CARA Track and Field
The City of Pueblo Parks and Recreation is offering CARA Track and Field. Recreation agencies from around Colorado offer this program so young athletes ages 5-16 years to participate in a healthy summer activity. Participants can try different events each week or just stick with their favorites. The season concludes with a state meet where athletes from different communities will compete together. Transportation to meets will be the responsibility of the participant.
