The Catholic Youth Organization strives to develop values and strength of character in tomorrow’s leaders through spiritually based athletic cultural and volunteer activities.

CYO operates a comprehensive program of athletic activities for young people.  Its wide range of programs include art and essays contests, cheerleading, scouting, theater, track and field, baseball, softball, golf and, of course, basketball.

  • This past year alone, over 150 parishes and schools participated in CYO Archdiocese of New York. 
  • CYO athletic teams registered more than 26,000 participants. 
  • This is all made possible by more than 3,000 volunteers that dedicate their time and effort to ensure the CYO mission is accomplished.

Proceeds from the Club of Champions dinner support CYO programs that serve tens of thousands of children and young people --non-Catholic and Catholic alike-- throughout the Archdiocese of New York.
