CATHOLIC YOUTH ORGANIZATION
More than just sports. A ministry.
BECAUSE YOU LEARN FROM MORE THAN TEXTBOOKS.
CYO is more than just athletics. It’s a ministry. St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School values the lessons that have long been taught by athletic participation. Our parish CYO athletes are driven by the pursuit of excellence – on the field and in the classroom. Through healthy and enjoyable competition, our athletes are rounded by ethical behavior, leadership, strategic thinking, and sportsmanship. Our CYO programs are run by our parishes as a comprehensive youth ministry program which enables the partnership of parents, coaches, priests, religious, teachers and adult leaders to manage and support a sports program that allows youth to grow in their relationship with God and come to better understand themselves and the Catholic faith. It also allows youth to witness the life of Christian discipleship in their coaches and adult leaders and encourages youth to become responsible members of their faith community.
