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 – volleyball, football, basketball and track. More than half of the school student body plays on Holy Cross teams!! 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 Directors, Walter Bridges and Nora Church, at

Fall season at Holy Cross typically has a Girls Volleyball team and a Basketball Hotshots team (1st and 2nd grades). It is seven weeks long beginning the last weekend of September.

Winter season at Holy Cross typically has Hotshots and several boys and girls basketball teams of various ages. It is about eight weeks long, beginning the first Saturday in January.

The weekly school newsletter 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 7 for a volleyball team and 7 for a hotshots team. We can also have more then 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 need for coaches or volunteers.

Fall 2018: look for information about a CYO night to help families with registration and to generate more interest in coacing and volunteering!

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 grame. 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.

For Scholarship questions, contact CYO office or explore website.

We are asking that parents of players volunteer as site monitor at least one Saturday in the HC gym during the season. 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.
