Please see message from Oakland Diocese CYO Director, Bill Ford.
Dear CYO Families,
Because of the continuing pandemic and restrictions, all CYO activities in the Diocese of Oakland will continue to be suspended, in compliance with prohibitions on team sports activities from Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. This action is based on the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic and the current challenges in keeping our young people, volunteers, and families safe in our Church-sponsored activities, as well as to be in compliance with county prohibitions. This suspension is taken after consultation with the presidents of the CYO leagues in the diocese.
The suspension includes the winter sports of CYO Boys’ Basketball, CYO Girls’ Basketball (in the eastern half of the diocese) and Girls’ CYO Volleyball and includes practices, games, and activities. Previously, CYO Cross Country did not run this fall. Our intention at this point is to resume those sports in Fall, 2021. However, the league presidents will continue to monitor conditions and to make additional recommendations should conditions change.
CYO remains hopeful that this coming spring, CYO Track and Field, CYO Girls’ Basketball (in the western half of the diocese) and CYO Boys’ Sand Volleyball can be played as these sports were not played last spring. The CYO league and track section leadership will recommend decisions regarding these sports after January 1. Resuming these activities will depend upon participant and volunteer safety, local government directives and venue availability.
CYO coaches are reminded that any sports activities at this time are without the sanction of the Diocese of Oakland and CYO. (See the CYO Athletic Manual, page 15, for “Off Season Restrictions and Limitations.")
We look forward to our parish churches and our schools reopening safely, a necessary first step in a return to CYO sports. When we are able to resume play, CYO will continue to be a vital ministry in our Church for our young people. We all continue to rely on our leagues and on the dedication of our many players, coaches, athletic directors, coordinators, game officials and volunteers.
While we wait, we will all be praying for all those affected by the pandemic, both directly and indirectly, and for our children to stay healthy and safe.
Bill Ford, CYO Director
We appreciate your patience and wish you all the best as you stay safe during these challenging times."
