CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) Sports

CYO Sports exists to provide opportunities for parish youth to participate in athletic activities under conditions that are safe, enjoyable, andpromote the Christian attitudes of fair play and cooperation. All eligible youth are given the opportunity to participate without try-outs or “cuts”.

Soccer (K – 8th) – https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/277299/signups

Early September – Late October.  8 Games.  This is a full return to soccer with limited COVID restrictions.  There will be no COVID supervisor role like there was in the Spring season and the ruling on masks is TBD.  We expect the season to be very similar to pre-COVID.  As always fielding teams is our biggest challenge so it’s imperative that you register as soon as you can so we can start working with different scenarios to give everyone a chance to play.  We will combine grades or work with other local parishes to make our teams.  Currently your commissioners are Mike Flasko for K – 3rd and myself (for now) for 4th – 8th.  The beloved Chris Long (yes, I said beloved) is stepping down after many years of being our 4th – 8th commissioner so I’m looking for a person to take over this role moving forward.  Let me know if you’re interested.  You get volunteer hours and you get to join our great CYO team!

Cross Country (K – 8th) – https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/277410/signups

Mid-September to Mid-October.  4 Meets.  As of now this is still only being offered in a virtual format so it will be very similar to last year.  There is a chance that they may put together a live meet on the last Sunday for 6th – 8th graders, but that is TBD.  This is a CYO decision and they are doing this to avoid having large crowds on the meet days.  Frankly I’m a little disappointed in their decision, but all we can do is adapt, so the plan as of now is to have live Friday practices and Sunday meets against ourselves at a TBD location.  If we can’t do this than it will just be separate and virtual like last year.  There will be no participation fee due to the virtual structure.  Your commissioner is Joanna Jones.

Adult Co-Ed Volleyball – ­­­­­­­­­­ https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/277459/signups

Mid-September – Late October.  7 Games.  This is back after its inaugural start in 2019 when we fielded 3 teams.  Games slot times are on Monday or Wednesday from 7 – 9pm and most games take place in our gym.  You may need to travel to another gym once or twice throughout the season.  You play against other parishes and there is an end of season tournament.  All of the adults loved playing last time.  Your commissioner is Alissa Long.

Men’s Basketball – https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/277464/signups

Mid-August – Late June.  The gym is closed in July.  Yearlong open gym pickup game format for all adults.  Timeslots are Tuesday and Thursday from 8pm to 10pm.  Unlike previous years, this is the first time we’re using our sports registration system to set up participants.  All participants must have a relationship to the school or parish in order to play and all participants must RSVP their weekly attendance so we know how many people to expect for each night.  There is a onetime registration fee (you choose) for the year to participate which will go straight to our “Here To Help” Campaign (more info below).  First time attending walk ins will be allowed to participate, but will not be able to participate a second time without registering in the system.  We’re aware this may take some getting used to, but the hope is that this simplifies the process to make every open gym night a success.  Your commissioner is Bill Lapke.  We are also looking for another person(s) to help Bill out so please reach out if you are interested.

Women’s Volleyball – ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/277485/signups

Mid-August – Late June.  The gym is closed in July.  Similar format to Men’s Basketball, except the yearlong open gym pickup game format is on Fridays from 8pm to 10pm.  All participants must have a relationship to the school or parish in order to play and all participants must RSVP their weekly attendance so we know how many people to expect for each night.  There is a onetime registration fee (you choose) for the year to participate which will go straight to our “Here To Help” Campaign (more info below).  First time attending walk ins will be allowed to participate, but will not be able to participate a second time without registering in the system.  We’re aware this may take some getting used to, but the hope is that this simplifies the process to make every open gym night a success.  We currently don’t have a commissioner in place to make this happen so if you’re interested in stepping up please let me know.  Our previous awesome commissioners were Colleen Brister and Erica Bartram, but they’re wanting to pass the baton this year.  This can only happen with someone willing to run it.  Let me know if you’re interested in taking this role on for the ladies.

TBD

Coaching – https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/277488/signups

Our sports programs don’t happen without parent volunteers so please volunteer to help out and coach our teams!  Within the link to sign up to coach is a dropdown feature to pick the specific sport.  All first time coaches will need to complete some online training course which are mentioned in the registration process.  All coaches will be invited to our end of year “thank you” party at a local brewery.  Thank you for volunteering to coach!

HFK “Here To Help” Campaign

This is something we started in the Spring, but are now fully implementing this year.  The campaign is a fund raising venture to help other schools within the CYO family pay for expenses that they can't cover themselves.  The goal is to raise money throughout the year via our sports registration process that we will then give to a representative from CYO during our end of year sports assembly.  We have so far raised $345 (thank you!!!!) and are hoping to raise $3,000 by the end of the year.  All adult registrations for Men’s Basketball and Women’s Volleyball will go straight to this campaign, while it will be an additional no minimum / maximum ask for Kid Soccer, Kid Cross Country and Adult Co-Ed Volleyball.  We appreciate any support you can give this campaign!  I know it will be cool for the kids to see us present this money during our end of year assembly.

Team Snap

We switched registration systems from Sports Pilot to Team Snap so please let me know if anyone encounters sign up issues so I can fix them immediately.  The only glitch I’ve encountered is you sometimes need to hit refresh on the waivers page if the continue button isn’t working on the first click.  Let me know if you come against any others so we can get them fixed immediately.  Team Snap should make registration much easier and allow our coaches to better communicate with our teams.

Feel free to reach out with any questions or comments at any time.  Excited to say “see you on the field” again!

Thanks,

HFK Athletic Director

Milo Magnano Jr.
