League Notices


Important!  - The Diocesan Athletic Director is working on gaining approvals to play grade school basketball this season. However, while the Diocese has not decided yet, the intent is to play. 

We are trying to figure out which schools are planning to take part in the Boy's Basketball League for the upcoming season, both JV and Varsity. We need to keep in mind the CDC guidelines for these types of gatherings, and all schools must follow these guidelines. Your Athletic Directors and Principals have already have the CDC guidelines from the Diocesan Athletic Director.

If your school is planning to have any Boys Basketball teams for the upcoming season, we are asking coaches or Athletic Directors to complete a TEAM DATA SHEET (found on our website at www.2badcats.com/dopboysbasketballfor each team at your school. Complete the form with as much information as is currently available to you.

We will let you know as soon as possible whether we will have a basketball season and when we might begin. Please be patient.
St. Elizabeth Elementary School in Pleasant Hills is looking for Girls JV and Varsity coaches for the upcoming season. Clearances required. If interested, contact Leslie Krueger, Principal, St. Elizabeth Elementary School (kruegerl@st-elizabeth.org)

Camps


Each year CYO recommends summer overnight basketball camps conducted in a safe environment. We have examined and evaluated these camps for Cost, Expertise in Instruction, Amount of Games, Tournaments, Improvement, Facilities, and 24 Hour around-the-clock supervision. The camps on the attached flyer have continued to be approved and recommended by the CYO as overnight camps that have the highest level of skill development that will improve each individual to their fullest potential and prepare them to be a future High School player. The recommended camps are listed as the best instructional camps concentrating on the fundamentals of basketball. These camps have proven to be conducted in a safe environment with around the clock supervision and are directed and staffed by caring adults.  - CYO Approved Camps
