Cherry Creek Youth Sports was started in 2010 with the help of Bryan Perry Cherry Creek High-School Head Coach! This relationship is based on our mission to help promote the great game of lacrosse in our Cherry Creek community.
We were at first just focused on grades 1-4th to help start organic growth of the most exciting game on two feet in the Cherry Creek High School District!
Over the last six years we have expanded to offer Lacrosse to all grades (K-8th) and this year will be the second year that CCYS Lacrosse Players will join the CCHS teams.
Building on the strength of our community we have over 50 freshman kids that will be playing this year with Cherry Creek and are excited to continue our focus on our core mission:
We are One Team, Focused on One Community!
We are the only Youth Sports organization in the State of Colorado that feeds one High School. We are run by dedicated volunteers that live in this community, attended Creek High School and are focused developing players to be prepared to enter the best High School in the state.
I believe that our success at Cherry Creek is determined by how well we work together as a team. We have always believed that there is no substitute for hard work. It is the determining factor in everything that is successful. Lacrosse is no different. Our players are expected to work when they are tired, work when they are sick of it." Cherry Creek High School Head Coach Bryan Perry (Class of '87)
