Catholic Youth Organization (CYO)

CYO, through the vehicle of sports, provides youth with an opportunity to practice Christian attitudes and responsibilities and to become friends with other children throughout the diocese. CYO activities should be examples of the meaning of Christian sportsmanship.”

The Oakland Diocese Catholic Youth Organization is a church-sponsored athletic program for elementary and junior high age youth from the parishes of the Catholic Diocese of Oakland. CYO Sports are offered by the Church as a ministry to young people. CYO sponsors a variety of sports: girls’ and boys’ basketball, girls’ volleyball, girls’ and boys’ track & field, girls’ and boys’ cross country, girls’ softball, boys’ sand volleyball and cheerleading.

Teams are offered for children in third through eighth grades. For enrollment or eligibility requirements, please contact your local Catholic parish athletic director Diane George 925-432-3043.
