The Colorado Fever Athletic Association officially began in December of 2006 as a non-profit youth sports organization designed to provide an inexpensive avenue for kids to participate in competitive sports. The organization supports both boys and girls ages 8 to 17 and has undergone tremendous expansion over the past years.
