Office for Catholic Youth Organization


CYO sports is the athletic component of a Parish or Catholic school youth ministry program. CYO enables the partnership between religious leaders, coaches, volunteers, and parents to manage and support a sports program that allows youth to grow in their relationship with God and come to a better understanding of themselves and the Catholic faith through sport. Such a program employs a healthy and enjoyable competition. CYO assists parish leadership in nourishing the emotional, spiritual, social, and physical needs of young people. CYO encourages young people to appreciate the gifts they possess and to succeed simply by striving to grow and improve. CYO allows young athletes to witness the life of Christian discipleship in their coaches and adult leaders and encourages the youth to become responsible members of their faith community.
