Christ in the City Missionary Makes an Impact on CYAS

 Andrew Wilson1Catholic Young Adult Sports has partnered with Christ in the City missionaries for a few years now. Christ in the City has led the night walks on the last Friday of each month, and members of CYAS have participated in those walks. Andrew Wilson has been a key missionary in this partnership. He started working for Christ in the City as a missionary and was then hired to handle accounting and grants, eventually taking on the role of Homeless Outreach Coordinator. Before his involvement with Christ in the City, he was living in Lexington, Kentucky, seeking a way to make his life more meaningful. He entertained ideas of joining the Peace Corps, or possibly a mission trip. In the midst of his search, he was matched with Christ in the City and was drawn to its discipline. Missionaries for Christ in the City are out on the streets of downtown Denver at 9 a.m. and normally do not finish their work until 9 p.m. After Andrew decided to work for Christ in the City, a friend introduced him to CYAS. Andrew liked the way CYAS incorporated the Catholic faith into sports. CYAS uses sports to evangelize, leading by example and making a practice of praying before and after every game. Andrew participated in several sports, including basketball, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball and softball and kickball tournaments.

Andrew wishes everyone could be involved with a CYAS-type organization. He especially enjoyed leading the night walks with CYAS. It was inspiring to see young adults give their time to mission work of their own free will, and he loved watching them interact with the homeless. The partnership between Christ in the City and CYAS extended even further. Andrew encouraged more Christ in the City missionaries to participate in CYAS, and they began to invite the homeless to come and watch their games. Andrew emphasized that missionaries are not meant to be case workers for the homeless; instead, they are meant to be their friends. As such, it would make sense for the missionaries to invite the homeless to their games. The homeless truly enjoy going to these games, and Andrew believes it is because they feel part of something. Going to a CYAS game can bring them back to an age of innocence. Most homeless people that Andrew met had difficulty trusting others, but watching a game allowed them to remember their childhood when they were happy and had a sense of belonging.

After several years with Christ in the City, Andrew has moved on to a new chapter in his life. He moved to Lima, Peru in January to work for a non-profit organization called Bridges, run by The Christian Life Movement that also sponsors Christ in the City. Andrew has contracted with Bridges to work for six months, once again helping with grants and accounting. He had never been abroad and was excited about this new experience. He said he would miss many aspects of Christ in the City and CYAS. He commented that with Christ in the City he "did work to be proud of, striving for holiness together" with the community. Everyone shared in each other's success and failure. Andrew found strength in dealing with the emergencies he faced on the streets of Denver and added, "God keeps using you even when you are completely drained." He has complete faith that the friendships he made through Christ in the City and CYAS will continue even though he was called to Lima. Andrew will be missed here in Denver, but it will be exciting to see the impact he will have while living for Christ in Peru.

Scholarship Request

All scholarship applicants, except religious, must pay what they can afford to!
It is the honor system. We reserve the right to refuse any scholarship request, but usually only do so for a lack of details or lack of following the above instructions. 

You must apply for a scholarship first, so that we can send you a scholarship code. Then you must register before registration closes. Scholarship applicants that do not register before EARLY registration ends, may be required to pay the free agent late fee (usually $5-$10 on top of what they can afford).

The details of scholarship requests shared below are kept confidential. You can request scholarships for as many leagues as you wish and for as long as the need persists, but we do request that you consider becoming a regular supporter of CYAS once your situation changes so that we may be able to continue to offer this benefit to others participants for years to come.

Jumping from Rat Race to Purpose

The Latest Story from CYAS - by Kate Anderson
“Once I stormed Heaven, reached out to friends and family, the desire to serve this ministry, specifically CYAS only grew stronger. So I followed the call I truly believe the Holy Spirit put on my heart and can proudly say, I am a CYAS missionary…in training! Praise God!” Mann said.

CYAS is a 501c3 non-profit charity, meaning donations are tax-deductible to the degree allowed by law. Like nearly all charities we have a revenue generating side through our sports leagues (e.g. red cross sells blood from blood drives) and a larger fundraising/charity side that is the heart of why we do the sports (discipleship through Bible studies, retreats, and mission trips). CYAS'  revenue from leagues is not nearly enough to cover the expenses for a national outreach ministry. In fact, it isn't even enough after expenses for one full-time staff employee. Donations primarily serve our mission in these main areas:

  1. To cover players that receive free scholarships for playing in our leagues (10% of participants)
  2. Expansion of our services in existing locations (including marketing for outreach and the development of formation programs)
  3. Expansion efforts (including our need for support staff and office space to build a national system - think league operation support, national marketing, donation processing and servicing, accounting, legal support, and expansion related travel and training systems)
  4. To pay for our insurance cost (about $10,000/year and growing as we grow)
  5. The ongoing formation, training and community building among our missionaries. They need to be loved in order to continue sharing His love
The captain's deposit is just that, a deposit ensuring us of your teams participation in the league. It is non-refundable, because we get field time and schedule around your team being playable. Captains with unused deposits will normally be offered a league credit, if CYAS is notified before the end of registration that the captain's team will not be in the league.

Full refunds will be provided for any event that we cannot hold due to field scheduling conflicts, lack of interest, or any other cancellation of a league/event on our part.

If a player is injured and will miss the remainder of the league, we suggest they help recruit a permanent sub and ask them to subsidize their fees (please contact us so we are aware of the arrangements & injury, or for help finding possible replacements).

Free agents and donations are non-refundable. Credits may be given to free agents for leagues, if they notify us before registration closes.

We wouldn't be "Catholic" Young Adult Sports if we weren't!

Several teams have both spouses playing and bring babies or kids to be watched by substitutes on the bench or by bringing a friend/relative spectator. Many captains will also let the couple share a team fee and just not play at the same time depending on if the team needs a man or woman. Couples may also free agent and join a team in this method, just contact us if you plan on rotating play and want a discounted team fee.


The Catholic Church is not adverse to the use of alcohol by adults in moderation.In fact, it was customary for Jews to drink wine within religious celebrations and regularly with meals. Jesus himself made good wine abundant at the Wedding of Cana and ultimately transformed wine into the gift of his blood, which we receive at the Catholic mass offered daily. Therefore, we are comfortable with the casual and responsible enjoyment of alcohol and are not adverse to gathering after a game at the local family friendly sports bar for fellowship and to enjoy a drink, and/or meal, in moderation.

We do ask participants to please refrain from consumption during our leagues out of respect for our participants who are opposed to the consumption of alcohol, are underage, and to help us provide a good witness that healthy fun community can exist without the assistance of liquid spirits.

It is CYAS policy that during CYAS events, where alcohol is allowed, only beer and wine may be consumed, no hard liquor or mixed drinks.

JOIN AS A FREE AGENT! We'll place you on a team or create a team of other FAs for you. If you only have a few friends you want to play with you can also ask to be placed together with others on a team or have some FAs added to complete your team.
CYAS has a strategic plan of national growth to reach young adults, evangelize through Bible studies and retreats, and provide awesome kick butt sport leagues, social events and mission trips. We have a hurdle though...missionary staff! We are praying for the Lord of the Harvest to provide laborers. If you know someone interested please send them to this link and suggest they apply to discern with us:
