4th – 5th – 6th Grade Columbus Academy Students

The Parents and Guardian’s Association of Columbus Academy (PACA) is pleased to present CA Youth Basketball as a winter sporting option for 4-6th grade students (girls and boys).

If your student wants to tryout for basketball, please follow these steps:

1. By Wednesday, October 21st, please email the youth sports administrator (below) that your student is interested in trying out for the PACA basketball team. Include your student’s name and grade.

2. Tryouts will be held at Columbus Academy on October 24th and 25th. Block your student’s schedule for both days of tryouts. It is expected your child will attend both days of tryouts. We will only allow players and coaches in the gym during the tryouts.

3. Notice to parent/guardian, during the October 24th tryout – a mandatory parent meeting will be held with the Youth Sports Administrator, Mary Deeds. The meeting will be brief and will take place during the tryouts (outside the field house).

4. Look for an email the week before tryouts confirming the exact time your student should arrive on October 24th and 25th.

5. Email me if you have any questions in the meantime. Thank you for your interest in PACA Youth Basketball!
