Many CYO Members host sanctioned tournaments, competitions and carnivals each year as a way to provide additional opportunities for competition and to raise funds for their programs. All Sanctioned Events are required to follow the competition rules in the CYO Sport Rulebook and follow the Competition Rules in the Charter and By-laws (By Law 4: Sections 3, 4, 6).
Coaches, if you are asked to compete in a way that is not outlined in the rules, please contact your Athletic Director immediately or contact Mary Ann King at 216.334.1261 ext. 17.
CYO endeavors to help young people be more Christ-like in the way they live. The young person, not the athletic activity, is the focus of CYO athletics. CYO provides an opportunity for as many eligible young people as possible to experience spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional growth through participation in CYO sports. At sanctioned events it is expected that coaches, teams and organizers will maintain the CYO philosophy and policies throughout the event.
