Partnership with Colorado Association of Recreational Athletics brings new programs!
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 Denver Nuggets Skills Challenge. This year southern Colorado parks and recreation departments have expanded their programs to include youth track & field in the spring and youth cross country in the fall. CARA CROSS COUNTRY WEBSITE.
