Championship information is provided so coaches, parents, athletes, and fans can share in the responsibility and enjoyment of a smooth running tournament. Your cooperation and that of your athletes and fans is appreciated and expected at these events. Diocesan Championships will be held for the Intermediate and Varsity levels in each sport. This playoff/competition represents a culmination of an athlete’s experience in the Diocese of Cleveland CYO. It is an opportunity to showcase the skills and sportsmanship our athletes and coaches have achieved through years of CYO involvement. Cadet, Youth and Junior Varsity levels will have play-off tournaments held at the conclusion of their regular season. These tournaments will involve a significant number of the teams that participated during the regular season. A gate may be charged for championships and play-off tournaments. The Admission Charges will be: Adults – $4.00, Students – $3.00, Seniors – $2.00, Family Limit – $12.00. All proceeds from the Diocese of Cleveland CYO Championships are placed in the Bishop Roger Gries CYO Good Shepherd Fund to assist our CYO members and staff with training, supplies, and support for the mission of CYO.
