Welcome to the Immacolata Athletic Association (IAA) website!
Welcome to the 2020-2021 Immacolata Sports Program. we realize most parish families whose children participate in sports are familiar with the Immacolata athletic programs. However, we thought this email would be useful to new families and provide useful and current information for existing families.
COVID – 19 Impacts
This is an interesting and challenging year as we had to cancel all spring sports due to the COVID 19 pandemic and required social distancing measures. We want to get our children out playing with their friends, as long as we can provide a safe environment. We are monitoring the situation closely but we have not received final word from CYC how the fall programs are going to work, but there will likely be some changes. We want to proceed with registrations so that the lay directors will be able to get all teams and rosters set up as if the seasons will go as planned. Due to the uncertainty, we are prepared to reimburse fall sports and family cap if necessary.

Code of Conduct
In order to ensure that all of our coaches and parents are aware of the CYC Code of Conduct, we will be we will be adding an attestation to the CYC code of conduct for Coaches and Parents during registration. Failure to abide by the Code of Conduct may result in disciplinary action by the IAA Board including but not limited to warning or suspension. Let’s make sure we maintain a positive environment for our children without any negative sportsmanship from players or coaches towards coaches, refs, parents, or players.
Each sport offered is coordinated by the Lay Director. Just like all of the dedicated coaches who volunteer their time the Lay Directors are behind the scene interacting directly with the CYC office coordinating registration and scheduling. Please take a moment to thank your coaches and Lay Directors, due to their commitment to the Parish, and the parents and children alike, the sports programs at Immacolata continue to thrive. Below is the list of Lay Directors and sports offered by the Parish:

Last year the IAA sports program has over 550 members, many of which play multiple sports throughout the year. In addition over 400 games and practices were held at the Parish. I along with the Lay Directors and the dozens of coaches thank you for the opportunity coach your children. We win our fair share of games but more importantly the Immacolata sports program continues to encourage participation, stresses the importance of sportsmanship and humility, while fostering friendships on and off the field. Thanks again for your participation.
