Mission Statement

The Chichester Youth Association was created in 1996 to provide and promote athletic programs for all youth in and about the town of Chichester, NH. The purpose of the association is to implant in the youth of the community ideas of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and reverence so that they may be fine, stronger, and happier youth who will grow to be responsible and healthy adults. Currently, the CYA provides soccer, softball, baseball, and tee ball programs for Chichester children in grades K through 6.

The Chichester Youth Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization run entirely by volunteers. The association relies financially on registration fees, donations, and fundraising projects.

The CYA is responsible for organizing tee ball, baseball, softball and soccer teams. Their home fields are located near the end of Bear Hill Road in Carpenter Park.

Code of Conduct

The youth of our community should have an opportunity to play sports in a safe, family-friendly environment, conducive to building good sportsmanship, respect for others and encouraging the development of self-esteem. In an attempt to provide this opportunity to our youth, the Chichester Youth Association has adopted a Code of Conduct which will be enforced on our fields during practice and game play, as well as on the playing grounds of our opponents by our home team players and their families or friends.

I. Respect for Property: Whether at practice, at a home or an away game, players for the Chichester Youth Association are representatives of the Town of Chichester, and shall treat all grounds, benches, fences and other structures with respect. Littering of any kind will not be tolerated.
II. Use of Obscene or Profane Language or Gestures: Any player, parent, guest, coach or official at any sports event using obscene or profane language or gestures, or racial, ethnic or sexual slurs will not be tolerated, and may be banned from attending future youth events.
III. Fighting: Initiating, threatening & engaging in fights or scuffles are strictly prohibited.
IV. Accident / Incident Reports: Any necessary first aid beyond a simple bandage requires a report to be filled out within 24 hours and returned to a board member of the CYA. Coaches must fill out and sign an incident report if a child is injured during any CYA activity.
V. Respect for Team Obligation: Any lateness or absence from practice or games has a negative affect on the team. While it is understood that circumstances sometimes arise, Coaches must be notified of any anticipated lateness or absence.
VI. Return of Uniforms: Uniforms, unless otherwise stated, are property of the CYA and must be returned at the end of the season in a timely manner. A replacement fee may be charged for returnable items not returned.
VII. HAVE FUN: Most importantly, the time our children spend playing and learning sports on our fields and within our organization should be fun and safe. Interaction between players, parents and coaching staff should be of a positive nature, without the pressure or expectations to perform beyond their abilities as learning children. Adherence to the above policies will help to ensure that our children are receiving beneficial experiences that will be with them for a lifetime.


Chichester Youth Association jackets are given to players when they play in the U12/Major levels and have played for at least 3 years within the organization. If the player reaches the level for one sport but would like to wait until the other sport to receive the jacket, this is acceptable but be aware that the player will not receive a jacket if they do not play at the major level for that sport.

Snack Shack

It is required by the CYA that at least one parent or guardian of each child participating in the baseball\softball program shall work, at a minimum, one “shift” in helping to run the Snack Shack. And one parent from each team will be designated (hopefully volunteer) as the “team parent” who will be responsible for coordinating the Snack Shack coverage for their team. Please note that the successful operation of the Snack Shack is extremely beneficial to the financial stability of the CYA in providing recreational programs for the youth of Chichester.

Please contact the your team parent to schedule your shift.
