St. Alphonsus CYO Sports Mission Statement
CYO Sports is one component of a parish's comprehensive youth ministry program which enables the partnership of parents, coaches, priests, religious, teachers, and adult leaders to manage and support a sports program that allows youth to grow in their relationship with God and come to better understand themselves and the Catholic Faith. Such a program:
Employs healthy and enjoyable competition to promote the sharing of gospel values among athletes, parents, and coaches.
Assists parish leadership in nourishing the emotional, spiritual, social, and physical needs of young people.
Encourages young people to appreciate the gifts that they possess, and challenges them to share these gifts with their community.
Allows youth to witness the life of Christian discipleship in their coaches and adult leaders.
Encourages youth to become responsible members of their faith community.
May God be glorified! Sports should always lead you to Christ, not take you away! Learn what it means to do all things for the greater glory of God!
