Athletics

The CYO Sports program is about teaching children the skills needed for playing games, and many more skills for making friends and for living a life that is well rounded and satisfying. Most
importantly, we want the children to have fun, learn how to work together as a team, and always
exhibit good sportsmanship. As a form of Youth Ministry, CYO Sports calls for the best of athletic
values and youth ministry in an integrated approach to the faith development of a young person.
   
Approximately 175 children, from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade, participate. Teams in
grades 3-8 play in the Archdiocese of Washington Catholic Youth Organization leagues; intramural
teams are fielded for grades PreK-2.
