The Oakland Diocese Catholic Youth Organization is a church-sponsored athletic program for elementary and junior high age youth from the parishes of the Catholic Diocese of Oakland. CYO Sports are offered by the Church as a ministry to young people.
CYO sponsors a variety of sports: girls and boys basketball, girls volleyball, girls and boys track & field, girls and boys cross country, girls softball, boys sand volleyball and cheerleading. Teams are offered for children in third through eighth grades.
CYO offers parish-centered or Catholic school-centered teams. CYO teams are not "club" or city teams. For enrollment or eligibility requirements, please contact your local Catholic parish athletic director.
