Families: You Are The Domestic Church

CYO 2017-2018 Season


If you are looking for registration information please contact your home parish.

CYO is all run at the parish level therefore, each parish determines when
registration begins and ends andwhen practices start, what days and times and determines
their own registration costs etc. 
There are rules regarding team makeup, there are no tryouts for any CYO sports
in the Diocese of Rochester. It is preferred that you play for the parish that you are
registered with and attend. However, if you are not registered at a parish, then you can
sign up at whatever parish is closest to your home that has a CYO program. But, all
CYO teams are to be filled by parishioners who wish to play and the  
roster must be 66% registered parishioners or greater.
 The commitment and support that parents, coaches,
and staff offer to our young people make this program possible.
