What is PYAA?

The Pirate Youth Athletic Association is a non-profit organization that provides youth athletics from grades 3-8. Our organizations support the Cochrane Fountain City community located in Fountain City, WI. The sports our program offers include volleyball, basketball, wrestling, and football. The PYAA provides youth with the opportunity to get exercise and start learning the fundamentals of various sports. Our PYAA Board and coaches are all volunteers from the community. We do charge a registration fee for sports which helps with covering insurance fees, hiring referees, hosting youth athletic events, etc. We also ask that parents/guardians help with volunteering some of their time to help out at home tournaments we host for the league. 




**If you cannot or have trouble paying registration fees please contact Melanie Ganschow. We will work with you to make sure that any child that wants to participate can.
