COVID-19 Procedures

(Updated 12/1/2020)


The CYO Office is working diligently with the Office of Catholic Education and the leaders of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to provide a safe and effective avenue for youth sports to return. At this time, our Catholic School students and their safety remain a top priority. With many gymnasiums being used for classrooms, Mass overflow, and various other COVID-19 procedures, CYO Winter sports would disrupt these procedures as well as our Catholic student cohorts inside our school buildings.

This directive from our local Pastors and Principals remains the same as we move closer to our proposed start date of January 4th, 2021. With so much uncertainty surrounding the Winter season and holiday break, our school and parish facilities remain unavailable for CYO’s safe return in a majority of the CYO Regions.

The CYO Office will continue to monitor for any opportunities in which all of our young athletes can safely return. Until that opportunity is present for all CYO parishes and programs across the Archdiocese, no CYO activities will be permitted.
