CYO programs seek to help young men and women appreciate Christ’s presence in their opponents, use their physical gifts and play fairly and enthusiastically, both on and off the field. Through programs and training linked to parish life, CYO offers young people, coaches and their families another opportunity to work together in communion, showing the world a new vision of competition in sports.
The Basilica of Saint Mary’s CYO sports programs are open to all youth whose families are members of the parish community, whether students at the Basilica School, in our CCD program, or are homeschooled.
In light of the ongoing pandemic, there will be no CYO Tennis program this fall,
CYO Track and Field and CYO Cross Country will be offering different opportunities this Fall. Please check their pages for details.
The goal of the Basilica’s CYO tennis program is to have fun and develop the skills and sportsmanship necessary to become successful tennis players.
