Welcome to the Ohio State CYO High School Boys and Girls Basketball Tournament website, home of the CYO State Tournament and March Madness! After qualifying through their local CYO program, High School Boys and Girls teams from across the state of Ohio gather at a host city for the Annual Tournament.
Sixteen boys teams and eight girls teams from various dioceses participate in the tournament. The single elimination tournament with a consolation round begins on Friday evening and crowns the State Champion on Sunday.
The David Vinson Sportsmanship Award is awarded to a boys and girls team each year. After every game, officials, staff and the opposing teams rate teams on their sportsmanship traits as identified by the tournament director.
You will also find tournament forms as well as information on the Sportsmanship Award, and Tournament History.
Hope to see you at the Games!
Diocese of Youngstown-2020.
