Coaches Corner

Welcome Coaches

It is a great honor and responsibility to coach children in the CYO Program.  As a coach, there are many tasks which are your responsibility.  We recommend selecting an assistant coach(es) as well as a team parent to help coordinate communications with the other parents.  Some of your tasks will include:

  • Attending mandatory coaches meeting before the start of the season
  • Communicating your weekly practice schedule and games to your parents
  • Managing concession and/or door on your team assigned day
  • Checking game schedule regularly to confirm game times for the upcoming weekend

    ***Please note game times/locations are subject to change, and it is your responsibility to confirm the game information weekly

Zero Tolerance Act - CYO Athletics will not tolerate any abusive behavior towards players, officials, or other spectators.  They are committed to maintaining a safe positive atmosphere for youth.
