CYO Sports

The Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) is committed to providing an environment that helps bring youth to their fullest potential by allowing them opportunities to develop strong moral character, self-esteem, and leadership qualities through activities of a social, educational, recreational, and athletic nature.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING THE CYO PROGRAM FOR THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR

CYO Volunteer Coordinator Needed
We are looking for a volunteer (or volunteers/team) to coordinate/oversee our parish/school youth sports program (CYO, Catholic Youth Organization).  The purpose of the CYO/Sports Program is to provide an enjoyable, instructive and positive sporting environment where participants can learn the fundamentals of a sport, teamwork, and other life skills consistent with our Christian faith.  CYO plays a competitive schedule against other Catholic parishes in Mercer County.  The parish provides the support and resources for the smooth running of the program. We are hoping to get a person (or persons) in place as soon as possible to plan for the Spring Season, which includes soccer and track.  Without a coordinator, the parish cannot participate in CYO sports. Those interested should contact Gary Maccaroni at 609-882-6491, or  gmacc@churchofsaintann.net.

 Intramural/Skills Building – Youth Basketball Coordinator, Coaches and Helpers Needed
 This year, since Saint Ann does not officially have a basketball team participating in CYO, we thought we would take the opportunity to provide the youth of the parish who are interested in basketball with some practice time, which could include small-sided games, and more. This would give them time to develop their skills, individually and competitively, in an enjoyable and supportive environment. However, in order to do this, we need a coordinator, someone who can organize and facilitate this program, coaches, and people to help. If you are interested, please contact Gary Maccaroni at 609-882-6491, ext. 116 or at gmacc@churchofsaintann.net.

ALL CYO VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN SAFE ENVIRONMENT TRAINING.

The Diocese of Trenton requires that everyone who has regular contact with children in church ministry must participate in a safe environment training program called “Protecting God’s Children” produced by the Virtus Corporation. This requirement is part of the Diocese’s efforts to provide a safe environment for children who participate in all of the various ministries of the church.
