CASA needs funds to replace equipment

 

The Cuero Area Soccer Association has been in the community for over 10 years serving children from the ages 4 through 12 years old. Starting out with a few players they now have 140 plus players from DeWitt County.
 
Over time, like anything else, equipment starts to deteriorate and fields and safety become a concern.
 
Dana Castillo, president of CASA, shared that the youth goals are nearly rusted through and are long overdue for replacement. She also expressed other areas of concern.
 
“We want to set up a ‘no parking’ area for our kids to be able to get to one field to another safely and install a fence on the other side of the U12 and U10 fields, ” Castillo said. “We want to provide a safer experience and safer fields for our players.”
 
If you are interested in participating or have further questions contact CASA at 361-212-9799.
