CYO Athletics

Catholic Youth Organization athletics have been a part of Catholic schools for a very long time.  Our philosophy is to be inclusive of everyone from the best athlete to the newest, beginning athlete.  Our volunteer coaches are always excited to work with the children to teach them the sport, create great team cohesion and develop within each child a desire to be the best Christian athlete/person he or she can be.  As you can imagine this takes incredible patience and hard work on their part.  Your support as a parent to help our children learn that winning and losing are just part of the athletic adventure.  The most important aspects in CYO athletics are being a great teammate, being a respectful and graceful opponent and becoming the best person you can be.

If you are interested in having your child be a part of these programs, please read below to see what sports St. Pats offers and what would fit you and your family best.

Basketball

Our basketball season is in the fall/winter. It is open to 4th-8th grade students. Watch for more information in the Blarney Stone for the 2017/18 season.

Volleyball

Our teams have one more weekend before spring break.  We hope you can come out and enjoy their improving skills and play this weekend.  Here are summaries from last weekend’s games:

The 7th grade green team won their match against St. Charles. They had good serve returns and quite a few excellent volleys.

The 7th grade white team lost their first set, won the second set, and narrowly lost the third set, ultimately losing the match to All Saints. They also had quite a few really good volleys.

Both teams are improving their volleyball skills. It is so much fun to watch both teams play! Great job, 7th grade volleyball players!

Our 6th grade green team played very well against St. Charles blue.  Ramsey, Lilly, Coral, Stephanie, Matteo and Madlyn had great serves and great team work.  In the first two games, we jumped out to big leads and they could not catch us.  In the final game, St. Charles jumped out to a lead, but our team worked through it, caught them and won by two.

Our 6th grade white team played All Saints in the final game of the night.  Liam, Taryn, Megan, Hannah, Mia and Lilly played hard!
