Get involved!

Saint Monica’s Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) believes that children grow spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically through dedicated practice and healthy competition in a variety of sports.  Adult volunteers are witnesses to Christ’s self-sacrifice when they volunteer their time and talent to help our young athletes.

If you’re not participating you’re missing out on of the parishes most vibrant ways of experiencing Christ’s joy… and it’s a lot of fun!

OUR PROGRAMS

  • Fall-Cross Country
    • It’s the one sport that helps you get in shape for ALL the other sports! It’s the one sport that EVERYONE can participate in. The team trains with the kids from St. Norbert’s so new friendships are made. Practices are usually twice a week at Hillside Park. And meets are held at Philadelphia’s historic Beaumont Plateau. What a great way to enjoy the beautiful fall weather!
  • Winter-Basketball
    • Kids of all ages can improve their passing, dribbling and shooting in our parish’s beautiful gym.
      • A clinic is held for first-graders – look for registration to being in October. While the emphasis is on the fundamentals the season usually ends with some scrimmaging.
      • Second and third graders step up a level and play games. But the emphasis is still on fun and fundamentals!
      • Fourth graders have an opportunity to play neighboring parishes.
      • Fifth through eighth graders can potentially participate in Region 32 league play.
      • High School intramurals is available for kids from 9th through 12th grade
  • Spring-Track and Field
    • When the weather gets warmer our little runners take over the track at Conestoga High school. Sprints, relays, distance runs and field events give the kids a chance to participate in a wide variety of events. Meets are held at Haverford High School. And the highlight of the year is the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s CYO night at the Penn Relays. The kids get the chance to run around the track at historic Franklin Field in front of a stadium full of screaming parents and friends!

Volunteer Requirements – Clearances
CYO depends heavily on volunteers. No experience necessary.  Just enthusiasm, the ability to encourage kids and your spare time. And we also need you to receive the same child abuse clearances required for all Archdiocesan volunteers.  Click here to learn more.
