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”.

CYO Sports and Adult Sports are open for Registration

Good news!!  CYO volleyball is a go (as of now) for a normal season.  Below is all of the necessary information about the season

  • Player registration is @ https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/301395.  Coach registration is @ https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/277488/signups.  Registration will close on 02.11.
  • Registration fee is $50 for all those that didn’t sign up to play basketball.  For those that did sign up to play basketball, please use the “previous basketball payment” box so your payment is $0.  This will make it so I don’t have to separately refund your money from the cancelled basketball season and you can just use this same money for volleyball.  I will refund anyone that signed up for basketball, but elects not to play volleyball when registration closes.
  • Practices run the weeks 02.07 – 04.04.  Practice times slots are M 5:00 – 8:00pm, T 5:30 – 7:30pm, W 5:30 – 8:30pm, TH 5:30 – 7:30pm, F 5:30 – 7:30pm.  They are picked by our coaches; 8th, 7th, 6th, etc. is the order.
  • Games run the weekends of 02.26 – 04.09; Saturdays and Sundays.
  • 4th is Co-Ed and 5th – 8th is gender specific.
  • Your volleyball commissioner is Chris Comunale @ ccomunale@gmail.com.  I will be your contact for all registration set up and he will take over once the season starts.
  • Volleyball is a new sport for our 4th and 5th graders (missed last year).  More information about the season can be found here on the CYO Team Sideline site – https://www.teamsideline.com/sites/seattlecyo/content/18958/4-8-Volleyball.
  • Attached are the COVID protocols.  Volleyball is considered a “moderate risk sport” so the rules will be very similar to soccer.  All coaches do have to be vaccinated.
  • Volleyball is by far the toughest sport we have when recruiting coaches because so many people feel they don’t understand the sport enough to coach.  Please don’t let that stop you from volunteering to coach a team as we will have a coaches clinic in the gym before the season starts to help all new coaches understand the sport better.
  • Please reach out directly to me with any questions you have about the season.

We look forward to seeing you on the court!!!!

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

Early September – 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

Early September – 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.  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!
