About Our CYO Basketball Program

CYO Basketball starts with Grade 5. There are 4 boys' divisions:  grades 5 & 6, 7 & 8, 9 & 10 and 11 & 12.  There are 3 girls' divisions: grades 5 & 6, 7 & 8 and 9 through 12.

CYO Sports is one component of our parish's comprehensive youth ministry program. It enables the partnership of parents, coaches, priests, religious, teachers and adult leaders to manage and support a sports program that allows youth to grow in their relationship with God and come to better understand themselves and the Catholic Faith.  To better understand the program, all parents and players should read this letter.
