The Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) is part of the youth ministry programs for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, CYO sports are for all youth in the Catholic Church and students at our Catholic schools. In CYO sports, Christian values such as respect, honesty, fair play, sportsmanship and humility are the model in words and actions.
The responsibility for the success of CYO sports rest with the administrator, coaches, parents and other volunteers at each parish. The program relies on adult volunteers to coach teams, assist at games and practices, work at the concession stand, etc. Adults who volunteer need to complete Safe and Sacred training prior to involvement in CYO activities. The adults play an important role in fostering the Christian growth of the young people participating in CYO sports.
In light of recent events within the NFL, CYO has issued a statement regarding conduct during the National Anthem. Click here to read the statement.
