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.
Our teams have wrapped up the regular season. The coaches are proud of their improvement and their skill development as well as their sportsmanship and growth as young people.
Our 3rd and 4th grade team started off the season developing their technique and court play. They lost their first three matches, but each time they played a little better. Then they went on their win streak and won their next two matches both against teams who had beaten them previously! The end of the season match against All Saints was well played. You could really tell the improvement in passing, hitting and serving. Go Shamrocks!!
Our 5th and 6th grade team played great all season. Even in their only loss to St. Charles blue, they played well. Their hard work during practice and games really helped them develop into the great team that they are. They finished the season with a record of 5 wins and 1 loss. They are on top of the standings going into the round robin tournament. Great job team!
Our 7th and 8th grade green team had a good season. They started by losing their first three matches and then went on a 2 match win streak. At the end of the season, they met their friendly rival St. Pat’s white. It was a grudge match, but the white team pulled off the win giving the green team a record of 2-4. They are excited to proceed to the round robin tournament this weekend.
Our 7th and 8th grade white team finished first in the 8th grade division with a record of 5-2. After losing their first match in a rout, their season didn’t look too bright. However, they buckled down and worked hard. They ended their season on a 5-1 run springing them ahead of their competition! They are poised to do well in the round robin tournament this weekend.
Our schedules for the tournament should be out soon. They will be posted on the archdiocesan website. Coaches will also have the schedules.

Our 2017-2018 season officially wrapped up with the conclusion of the middle school championships. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped oversee this great season. Congratulations to all runners from 1st place to 99th place. Finding the strength to finish every race in life will help you be a strong Christian and person.
Pierce County CYO does not offer track. If we put together teams, we will have to travel to Seattle to compete. We have had school children participate in the track program through All Saints and St. Vincents. We have had several groups look at the baseball programs.
If you have interest in starting a team, please contact the athletic director and we can look into these matters.
