Building on a long tradition of Athletics in the Archdiocese, the Office for Youth & Young Adult Ministry sponsors , coordinates and carries out various sports leagues for our grammar aged students in the counties of the Archdiocese for those that attend Religious Education in our Archdiocese, or that attend our Archdiocesan Grammar Schools.

The Office for Youth & Young Adult Ministry DOES NOT sponsor teams. Parishes and Schools create teams and then join leagues.   It is not like in a town’s Recreation Program where children “sign up” to play. Registrations for teams take place at the PARISH or SCHOOL LEVEL.

CYO Girls Fall Volleyball

Once again this Fall we will be offering Girls Volleyball for grades 5 to 8 in all four counties of our Archdiocese.

CYO Basketball

Required Safe Environment Clearance for all CYO Coaches/ Volunteers
