WELCOME TO THE 2016-17 SEASON OF
PETER’S CAPITOL HILL CYO
The mission of the St. Peter’s Parish CYO program is to further develop boys’ and girls’ bodies, minds and spirits through healthy athletic competition. Our athletes are taught to respect the sport, their opponents and their coaches. CYO athletics is open to children of parishioners of St. Peter’s Capitol Hill, St. Patrick’s, St. Joseph’s, St. Mary Mother of God, St. Frances de Sales and St. Dominic’s and attending St. Peter School. Age eligibility is determined by sport.
For the 2016 cross country season, we will take a break as we look at the program and recruit new coaches. We will offer Spring Track and Field in 2017.
For the 2016-17 basketball season, we will offer boys and girls teams in U10, U12 and U14 divisions. Players on the U14 teams must be 14 and under by December 31, 2016. Players on U12 teams should be 12 and under as of December 31, 2016. Players on the U10 teams should be minimum 3rd grade and 10 and under by December 31, 2016. Parents must be able to demonstrate they are parishioners of one of the above mentioned parishes or their child attends St. Peter School.
Practices will begin the first week in November. Games for U14 start in early December. It is likely that to get a balance on the teams, some players might play up. Players may not play down.
Sign up for basketball will begin in late September and must be completed through the Sports Pilot Program on the St. Peter’s parish and school websites. Access through the following link:
Our players are expected practice good sportsmanship and respect for officials and coaches.
We always welcome VIRTUS-trained adults from the community to lead or help with coaching. We are also looking for volunteers to help out with back office tasks such as website, communications and finance.
