Want Middle School Sports? Think "Catholic Schools!"

Thirteen years ago, Catholic Schools on Long Island offered few, if any, inter-school athletic competitions. Thanks to the work of many wonderful volunteers from our parishes and schools, the CMSAA came to be, and that all changed!

Now, in this era of austerity and cuts in budgets all around us, the Catholic Schools offer an array of middle school sports opportunities that is tough to beat.

In the fall, our sixth, seventh and eighth graders can compete in Soccer or Cross-Country. Our Soccer teams travel across Long Island and play on some of the best fields on the Island, Meanwhile, our cross-country schedule boasts meets at Parks in the north, south, east and west, and includes multiple meets at Sunken Meadow Park, recognized as one of the premier XC venues on Long Island. Our meets draw hundreds of students.

In the winter, middle school athletics include Basketball and Bowling. Basketball remains an extremely popular sport, over 50 squads compete across six divisions. Bowling, has allowed even more students to join a school team in competition.

Spring brings with it Baseball, Softball, and an incredibly talented and competitive Volleyball program (both Coed and Girls only divisions) as well as Boys/Girls Lacrosse. The CMSAA Baseball and Softball program plays approximately half of its games at Baseball Heaven, an incredible complex in Yaphank which has four 90 foot baseball diamonds as well as three softball fields. It is not uncommon in April and May to find four, five or more CMSAA ballgames going on simultaneously at Baseball Heaven. Lacrosse has taken the CMSAA by storm and continues to grow each and every year!

All of these sports are brought to the Catholic Schools through an efficient and cohesive structure -- the CMSAA -- and volunteer "Reps" from each school who donate their time and talents. Accordingly, CMSAA sports, funded entirely by the families of the students, typically can cost between $75 and $125 per season; very reasonable for middle school sports.

Please share news of the CMSAA with your friends, parishes, and schools. We are growing, while others are contracting, and our schools are benefiting from this wonderful experience we make possible for middle school students in the Catholic schools on Long Island.

The 1 PM Rule:

The CMSAA has adopted a rule in which any game or event that is canceled due to inclement weather or other factors, will be done so by 1 PM the day of the game. It is the home team's responsibility to make the decision and notifications. The affected schools and Athletic Director must be notified prior to 1 PM and email or verbal confirmation of the cancellation is mandatory. Otherwise, the game is on and can only be canceled by the game official at the field/event.
Thank you for your cooperation.


CMSAA Volunteers.....

The CMSAA operates almost exclusively through the kindness and support of Volunteers.
Our Volunteers donate their time and talents for our student athletes and for the Catholic Schools of our Diocese.

While our Volunteers may work for nothing, that doesn't make them worthless......they are priceless to the student athletes of the CMSAA!

Please lend a hand (instead of pointing a finger!)

THANK YOU & GOD BLESS.

CMSAA Mission Statement

Purpose: The Catholic Middle School Athletic Association ("CMSAA") is organized to provide a structure for interscholastic athletic competition among member middle schools in the Diocese of Rockville Centre.

The role of the CMSAA is to:

* Enhance the offerings of the Catholic schools in the Diocese by facilitating a viable after school middle school sports program.
* Promote good sportsmanship and Catholic values.
* Organize, institute rules and schedule games across a variety of boys and girls sports, including, but not limited to soccer, cross country, basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball.
* Ensure member school compliance with league rules, spirit and regulations, inclusive of representatives and coaches.

Membership currently includes more than twenty Catholic schools across the Diocese of Rockville Centre.

Each active school has one or two CMSAA Representatives who meets monthly, devoting their time and talents to ensure the program adheres to its mission of supporting the schools and students in a Christian atmosphere. The CMSAA has elected officers and committees to oversee the program, and in early 2009, with the encouragement and assistance of the Tomorrow's Hope Foundation, engaged the services of a dedicated Athletic Director to coordinate all activities.

The CMSAA offers after-school sports throughout the school year. Each school has their own individual team policies regarding involvement.

The CMSAA separates the teams into appropriate divisions of play, depending in part on the enrollment of each school and the number of students participating, and sometimes in deference to geography. We further separate submitted teams into ) divisions, depending on the grades of the athletes and local decisions.

The CMSAA has made a significant positive impact on both the school environment for our children and on the offerings of our Catholic Schools. School pride is higher than ever, schoolmates across grades now have more common interests, and students from "competing" Catholic Schools now share new friendships when they unite at a common Catholic High School.
