CAYSA is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. CAYSA was founded in 1964 as the Northside Athletic and Recreation Club by Javier Cavazos, who continues as CAYSA Director. The organization's name was changed in 1990 to reflect its broader impact on Mid-Michigan youth sports.CAYSA offers leagues for boys baseball. Over 10,000 boys, girls, and their families have taken part in CAYSA Baseball and Basketball.

CAYSA opportunities are available to all youth from Lansing and its surrounding communities, regardless of athletic ability, or social or financial status, who are in need of guidance and direction under the leadership of caring, positive adults.
