Cathedral Chapel School is a member of the Catholic Youth Organization (C.Y.O.). Students in grades 7 and 8 comprise the “A” teams, and students in grades 5 and 6 comprise the “B” teams. In some instances 4th graders may be invited to participate.
The purposes of such a program are:
a. To teach sportsmanship;
b. To overcome tendencies toward excessive competition;
c. To acquire agility and physical coordination;
d. To learn to keep rules;
e. To practice self-control.
Archdiocesan guidelines state that the athletic program must be self-supporting. To cover the high costs of the athletic program, (fees, officials, equipment, etc.) athletes will be charged $60 for each sport played. It is expected that parents of students involved in CYO sports, volunteer in some significant capacity, as well as follow rules set down by coaches regarding meetings, practice, and pick up times. Volunteers at least 21 years of age with a valid California driver’s license and proof of insurance are always needed to drive to practices and games. WHICH SPORTS WILL BE PLAYED WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE AMOUNT OF INTEREST SHOWN BY PARENTS AND HOW MANY STUDENTS QUALIFY BEFORE THE SEASON BEGINS. IF THERE ARE QUALIFIED COACHES AND ENOUGH VOLUNTEER PARENTS THE SCHOOL WILL PARTICIPATE. FAILURE TO COOPERATE IN ANY PART OF THE PROGRAM MAY RESULT IN A STUDENT BEING ASKED TO LEAVE THE PROGRAM.
