CYO/Athletics

“Our athletics should go hand in hand with our youth ministry. Sports well understood and practiced contributes to the development of the whole person because it demands generous effort, careful self control, mastery of self and respect for others, complete commitment, and team spirit.”

Saint John Paul II

CYO Athletics are a vital and important component of Youth Ministry and an opening to young people’s active participation in the Church. It can be an effective influence in the formation of a young person’s Christian value system and life style.

Track and Field

The 2021 Track and Field season will begin Tuesday, April 20th. All practices will be held at St. Andrew Apostle School according to the following schedule:

Practices will be from 6 pm-8 pm during the weekSaturday practices will be from 1 pm-3 pm.

Meet sites and dates are still not set. As of 4/12, the CYO office had tentatively arranged two meets at Seton HS for Sunday, 4/18, and, 4/25, but these were not confirmed. Obviously, we won’t be participating on, 4/18, if the meet is held. Also, if the CYO can find a track for any of the Saturdays listed above, we will forgo practice and compete at the meet on that date

It will be an abbreviated, unusual, and hopeful season. The coaches ask for your patience and forbearance as we navigate it. If your child wants to run, please see the contact information below to request more detailed information about practices and meets

The team registration fee is $75 and payment will be made through St. Andrew’s Sports Pilot website. An additional fee of up to $25 may be necessary for the purchase of a singlet for your child to wear during the meets. Participation is open to children in grades 1-9 (age 14 or under on, 5/30/21) from St. Andrew Apostle and surrounding Catholic parishes without track teams. If your child has never participated in CYO events, a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate may be needed, or, if your child is a non-Catholic attending a Catholic school, a copy of the Principal’s Letter from that school verifying attendance.

Notification of intent to participate should be sent to Dave Luksic or Hugh McKenna as soon as possible. Please email Dave Luksic, at luksicfamily@verizon.net, or Hugh McKenna, at hughmckenna@msn.com, with the following information: child’s name, sex, date of birth, grade, parents’ names, home address, contact phone numbers, email addresses, and parish.
