Why CAAA...Where did it get its start...

Chris Arnold, a student and avid sportsman of Darby Township High School in Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania was admired by many for his personality and talent.  Chris played all sports at DT, but his love was for basketball and football with numbers ranking him among the top highest scorers in both sports.

 It was a very hard blow to his family, schoolmates and the Darby Township community when Chris' life was cut short due to illness at such a prime moment in his sports life.  While mourning such a large life, a small group of fellow Darby Township High School alumni sponsored a basketball game in Chris Arnold's honor in 1984 and from that day the Chris Arnold Athletic Association was formed.

After 33 years and counting, CAAA has proudly assisted and coached young boys and girls grow into outstanding adults through the various sports activities provided by the organization.
