CYO Boys BasketballCYO Basketball is open to boys and girls in grades 3-8. Practices begin in early November followed by a regular season that begins in December. The program concludes with the exciting Championships Tournaments held in February.

The goal of a CYO Coach is to facilitate a positive environment in which athletes can grow physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. For a list of the requirements to be a CYO Coach,  visit the How to be a CYO Coach page.

CYO’s philosophy states that every player participates at all divisions of play. Each athlete must be treated with Dignity regardless of their ability. Participation on a team allows players to learn and understand the values of cooperation, teamwork, sportsmanship, responsibility and respect. CYO encourages each child to develop at their own pace while working for a common goal by regulating mandatory participation rules. The participation requirements are clearly defined in the sport rules. It is our Hope that each athlete can make a significant contribution to their team.

Genesis 1:27 reminds us “in the Divine image God created humanity.” CYO Athletics encourages every athlete and every coach to accept one another with compassion, respect, patience, kindness, humility and understanding.

Whether a basketball player is dribbling, passing, or shooting, CYO Basketball develops a wide range of skills. CYO Basketball – all net!
