CSA Collegiate Scholarships Available

We offer $2000 in scholarships to college-bound students who have previously played softball at CSA. Applicants need to have played some level of high school softball while carrying a GPA higher than 3.0. CSA is proud to offer this great opportunity for graduating seniors. The deadline for submission is April 30, 2022.

Please note that the final step in the online application is the upload of a one page essay in MLA format that answers the question: How has softball affected my life? (Please save your file as a PDF.)


CSA support runs deep

We'd like to say thanks to our softball sisters and families who showed an incredible act of fandom for Team Velocity as they were playing their games up at State. Carlsbad 12U "El Fuego" hosted a Game Changer viewing party watching Velocity win their third straight game. We believe it made all the difference and helped our girls defeat Poway 3-0 in the bottom of the 6th inning. CSA rocks it!!!

12U All-Stars having fun as secret sisters!
