CYO Fall Sport Parents, Coaches, and Athletic Directors,
As the leaves begin to change and we begin to prepare for the remaining weeks of the fall season, please remember that the CYO culture is a collection of our character within all our actions. We must continue to inspire young people to know God, to love God, and serve God.
Coaches, do you recall, at the coach’s meetings, we highlighted that establishing the right culture of CYO continues to be the focus this season? How important it is that a coach be an example of integrity, of coherence, of good judgment, of impartiality, and also of joy of living, of patience, of capacity to esteem and of benevolence to all?
If you see people being disrespectful, then you need address that behavior immediately and/or contact your athletic director, coach or CYO through the incident or contact button on the right of this page with the specifics of who, what, when and how the violation occurs.
Parent’s Weekend: We will celebrate Parent’s Weekend Sept. 16-17, 2017. Parents will be permitted to join their child on the court, field or course for the pre-game prayer and the officials’ sportsmanship talk to the players and then join them again for the post-game prayer. Don’t miss “Parents Day at the Game” this weekend. If you see a great example of parent’s weekend, take a picture and share it with us on twitter @CYOSportsDOC.
Team Mass Sunday: Sunday, September 24, teams from across the Diocese will participate with parents, coaches, and other teams for Team Mass Sunday. Please contact your athletic director and coach for details.
