NEW......fall sports registration deadline July 19th


CYO has scheduled maintenance to the online registration site during the second week of July. tThe registration site (orgsonline) will be off-line the week of July 8-12. Therefore we are extending the Holy Name CYO sports deadline one week. The new sports registration deadline will be JULY 19th. Please note that this extension to the deadline means that NO LATE registrations will be processed. Please plan accordingly and read the information below carefully.


If your son or daughter is interested in playing a fall sport for Holy Name, please register them now via the CYO website (see link/instructions below). In an effort to assist us with building teams and ensure appropriate staffing, we need your registrations as soon as possible. The deadline final payment is 7/19/2019 via the CYO website.

This year CYO is requiring any student wishing to participate in a "Fall" sport must register by July 19, 2019. These Fall sports include:

  • grade school football (3rd-8th)
  • grade school cross country (via St. Jude)
  • girls grade school basketball (4th-8th)
  • girls grade school kickball (3rd-8th) and
  • boys & girls high school volleyball (9th - 12th)
  • cadet cheerleading (7th-8th)

CYO has also backed up the start schedules for these sports in an effort to not overlap other sports and to attempt to schedule around fall breaks.

Please follow the instructions below to register your son or daughter for a fall sport.
