Each parish in the Diocese of Oakland sponsors a Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) as one dimension of its total ministry to youth. It is an athletic program open to all children in the parish boundaries. The ultimate responsibility for the success of CYO programs lies with the volunteer adult participants.
Adults involved in CYO should remember that the program exists for the Christian growth of young people. The conduct of adults should always model Christian values and virtues. Students on Academic or Disciplinary Probation may not participate in CYO athletics until improvement is made.
