CYO Sports

“To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love, For it is in giving that we receive. . .”
~ from The Prayer of Saint Francis


Many of our students participate in CYO sports. Sports are a wonderful opportunity for students to learn the basic rules of the sport, get to know their classmates in a different setting, and get exercise.

If you have questions about the CYO program at Holy Cross, please contact our CYO Director, Mr. RJ Tagorda, at

Fall season at Holy Cross typically consists of Girls' Volleyball (3rd-8th) and Basketball Hotshots team (Co-ed, 1st & 2nd). We also have several runners in Cross Country (in partnership with The Madeleine School). It is seven weeks long with practices beginning in early September.

Winter season at Holy Cross typically consists of Boys' and Girls' Basketball (3rd-8th) and Basketball Hotshots team (Co-ed, 1st & 2nd). We also have several runners in Track (in partnership with The Madeleine School).I t is about eight weeks long with practices beginning in November.

The weekly school newsletter and the extracurricular newsletter (1-2/month) will have reminders about when registration opens and closes.

If you are a HC family - you start process by clicking on the No when it asks.... "do you need an exception?"

We won't know if we have enough for teams until we have players registered. We need at least 8 for a volleyball team, 7 for a hotshots team, and 7 for a basketball team. We can also have more than one team.

Keep in mind:

If there are not enough players for the grade / team for your child, you will get a refund or we can let you know what other CYO teams may have a spot for your child. We keep you posted on how our teams are coming together as time goes on and the need for coaches or volunteers.

Games are on Saturdays (some at Holy Cross gym, but not all). Unfortunately, we do not know the times/locations until the week before the 1st game. Game times could be in the morning to early afternoon. Possible locations will be on the Camp Howard/CYO website. There is never more than one game on a Saturday, unless it is a make-up game.

Scholarships are offered at the registration page (scholarships are through CYO). For scholarship questions, contact the CYO office or explore the CYO website.

We are asking that parents of players volunteer in some capacity during the season. You CAN receive share hours for volunteering. It could be the game before your child's game or the game after. It a simple job, and we will give you more details when we have a schedule.

Keep in mind: other Catholic Schools may offer different sports, and as a HC family, you can sign up for them from the CYO Camp Howard website.

If you have any questions at all, let us know.
