Holy Name Parish Athletics

Summer . 2019 . Issue 1 . May 24, 2019

Welcome to the summer edition of the Holy Name of Jesus Athletics Newsletter. In this update we have information on Fall sports registrations and deadlines.

Did you KNOW. . . .

that Holy Name supports High School CYO Teams? If you have an interest in playing Volleyball or Basketball at a high school level, then you can sign up to play on Holy Name's CYO team. Watch the newsletters for more information.

Note from CYO: Due to the growing popularity of Boys High School Volleyball in the State of Indiana, beginning in September, 2019 the CYO will host a Boys High School Volleyball league in conjunction with the current CYO Girls High School Volleyball League.

Please know that the CYO guidelines must be followed. All participants must play for their parish of registration.


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 7/12/2019 via the CYO website.

This year CYO is requiring any student wishing to participate in a "Fall" sport must register by July 12, 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)

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.

CYO Sports Registration:

CYO and the Holy Name Athletic Commission requires all students who play sports to have a physical on file. A student without a valid physical will not be allowed to practice or play games until it has been turned into the Athletic Commission. For all fall and winter 2019 and spring 2020 sports the student must have a physical dated after April 1, 2019. Sports physicals will be valid for an one year of sports from date of physical.

The CYO also requires that each student and parent read and sign concussion and sudden cardiac arrest forms each year. These also must be on file with the Athletic Commission.

The following links can be used to find the physical form, concussion/sudden cardiac arrest paperwork and our physical policy. These will be collected at the first team meeting of each sport where applicable.

Holy Name participates in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) athletics. This program guides our children in their development of Christian values such as fair play, good sportsmanship, team work, honesty, respect, tolerance, gratitude and humility.

Our youth develop the values and character of Christ while participating in our sports offerings. CYO creates many of our sports schedules, manages player/coach participation requirements and sources locations and referees for our competitions.
