CYO Mission Statement
CYO Sports is one component of our parish's comprehensive youth ministry program which enables the partnership of parents, coaches, priests, religious, teachers, and adult leaders to manage and support a sports program that allows youth to grow in their relationship with God and come to better understand themselves and the Catholic Faith.
CYO Prayer For Sportsmanship
Dear God, Every single day no matter what sport we play we keep Your heart Within us from the start. In the CYO No one is treated as a foe so if we win or lose we always stick together forever and ever. Amen
tudents are encouraged to take part in the many activities that St. Anastasia CYO Parish offers.
To participate in any CYO sponsored activity the student must:
Be a registered member of the Parish and attend St. Anastasia School or another Catholic School, or regularly attend CCD classes at St. Anastasia.
A student athlete who is registered in St. Anastasia parish but attends a separate parish's school may participate with either parish's CYO, but they must immediately establish a preference. Upon establishing a preference, the student athlete must participate with the designated entity for the remainder of the CYO year. As an exception, if the chosen entity does not offer a particular sport, the student athlete may participate, for that sport only, with the entity which was not originally selected. At no time may a student athlete participate in the same sport at two different CYO entities.
It is also required that non St. Anastasia School students participate in the parish's religious CCD program in order to participate in CYO activities. CCD students are required to attend CCD classes regularly on a weekly and yearly basis in order to be eligible to play in CYO sports. Once a student receives the sacrament of confirmation he/she is not required to attend CCD but is encouraged to continue with our Resolve program through 7th and 8th grade.
Students are encouraged to take part in the many activities that St. Anastasia CYO Parish offers. Activities offered coincide with the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons.
Parents or Guardian must register each student for specific activities during open-registration periods. Check this website or the Church Bulletin for open-registration periods. The CYO offers two options for registration: Walk-in or Online.
All CYO players are required to participate in a service project.
The head coach will coordinate the project with the CYO board.

Parents that aren't coaching can help in other ways. There are many activities that a coach needs to do in addition to coaching. Please consider helping out with collecting CYO fees, organizing service projects, making phone calls or updating your teams schedule on the Catholic Parishes Network website.
CYO Player Fee
A player fee is required to play each sport. A player will not receive a uniform until his/her fee is paid to the CYO. The fee is due at the Parent Meeting held at the beginning of the season. The CYO thanks you for your support.
