CYO’s philosophy states that every player participates at all divisions of play. Each athlete must be treated with Dignity regardless of their ability. Participation on a team allows players to learn and understand the values of cooperation, teamwork, sportsmanship, responsibility and respect. CYO encourages each child to develop at their own pace while working for a common goal by regulating mandatory participation rules. The participation requirements are clearly defined in the rule book. It is our Hope that each athlete can make a significant contribution to their team.
Genesis 1:27 reminds us “in the Divine image God created humanity.” CYO Athletics encourages every athlete and every coach to accept one another with compassion, respect, patience, kindness, humility and understanding.
Track and Field athletes use their skills and discipline to help them finish that race or place in a field event!
