CYO is a ministry of the Church, providing children of St. Elizabeth an opportunity to meet and play in a Christian environment. Children are treated by coaches and parents in a positive and encouraging manner.
Emphasis on teamwork, sportsmanship, positive attitude, love of the game, respect, commitment, and responsibility.
CYO programs serve the needs of all youth. They enable the gifted to excel, the less gifted to participate and improve.
All participants should have the respect of others on their own team and the opposing team. Participants should have a spirit of loyalty to CYO ideals, to parish, to coach, and to the team. They should learn patience with and tolerance of those of less ability. Their speech and actions should reflect Christian values.
Prayer – All CYO activities will begin and end with prayer.
Christian Service – CYO teams are Christian communities – all treat teammates and other teams with respect and dignity. As part of our call to serve, each team will plan and participate in a service project for the parish or local community.
Stewardship - CYO would not exist without the stewardship of parents and other parishioners. As part of the registration process, there are required fields indicating ways in which parent assistance is necessary to run a program. As always, we are in need of coaches, service project coordinators, and other positions so please consider volunteering in one of these roles.
