Concord, CA – The Catholic National Athletic Association and AstroTurf are pleased to announce the continuation of their valued partnership. AstroTurf, the inventor of synthetic turf and the most innovative company in the industry, once again leads the way by partnering with visionaries and pioneers in athletics.
CNAA was born out of a need to represent the voice of Catholic Educational Athletics in local, regional and national governing bodies. CNAA also provides a platform for professional development including education, training and peer forums, as well as buying opportunities created by collective bargaining power.
With this partnership, CNAA has found a willing partner—one that has supported the organization and the schools it represents with opportunities, education, advice, promotion and consultation. AstroTurf provides financial support to assist CNAA in bolstering the reputation of catholic educational athletics and bettering its members’ athletic departments though education and training. Another major benefit of the partnership is that AstroTurf offers a discount on synthetic turf fields for CNAA members.
“We are very particular who we partner with,” said Leo Lopoz, founder of CNAA and President of Athletics at De La Salle High School. “Our relationship with AstroTurf® gives us a valued partner that has a mission that aligns with our own – to help kids succeed in sports and beyond. Their support has been instrumental in the growth of our organization and we look forward to what the next year brings with us working together to accomplish our goals.”
CNAA members are Athletic Administrators representing Catholic schools across the United States. All Catholic school programs large, small, old and new are welcome to join as members. CNAA is your organization providing a multitude of benefits all with the intent to serve you its members and all Catholic Athletic programs.
The partnership formed out of a long-standing relationship between CNAA and AstroTurf that started before CNAA took its organization to the national level. When CNAA took that step, it felt natural to form an official partnership with AstroTurf.
“AstroTurf has long had a tremendous relationship with Catholic educational institutions and we look at this partnership as a way to strengthen and improve those relationships while also looking for opportunities to build new ones,” said AstroTurf General Manager, Dominick Berarducci.
The mission of CNAA is to represent the voice of Catholic Educational Athletics in local, regional and national governing bodies.
