Holy Name Parish Athletics

September 2018

Welcome to the first edition of the Holy Name of Jesus Catholic School & Parish Athletic Newsletter. This update is provided to you via the Holy Name Athletic Commission and is intended to be your resource for all things sports at Holy Name. CYO sports are open to any athlete who are either enrolled in Holy Name Catholic School and/or who resides in a household that is a registered and participating parishioner of Holy Name Catholic Church.

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. To learn more about CYO please visit: http://www.cyoarchindy.org/Athletics_AboutPrograms.aspx

Boys Football Schedules

CYO Offered Sports at Holy Name & Partner Schools

CYO offered Sports at HN

Football • Kickball • Basketball • Volleyball • Softball • Baseball

CYO Offered Sports at Partner Schools (Nativity, St. Jude, St. Mark, etc.)

Cross Country • Soccer • Wrestling • Track & Field • Boys Volleyball

In years past, Holy Name has directly engaged a team in the above sports. However at times we may partner with another Parish/School teams if we are unable to meet the participation requirements at HN. This way we ensure that our members can compete in a chosen CYO sport. As we approach enrollment dates for these sports, we will update you on how you can register for these sports.

Little Giants Sports

Flag Football • Wrestling • Basketball • Soccer

Holy Name also offers sports for our younger grades. All students or Parish families are eligible to participate in our PK-2/3rd grade sports. These are for students who are not yet old enough to participate in the CYO sponsored athletics. We teach fundamentals, team work and have a lot of fun playing.

A Little Giant Registration Form will be required when these sports are active. You can anticipate Wrestling to begin near December and Basketball just after the new year. Our Little Giant program is dependent upon participation numbers and the availability of volunteer Coaches.


(CYO) 2018-2019 Grade School Boys & High School Boys Basketball closes 9/17

(CYO) 2019 Winter Grade School Boys & Grade School Girls Volleyball closes 11/26

To register for a CYO sport follow the links below.

The CYO and 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 2018 and spring 2019 sports the student must have a physical dated after April 1, 2018. Sports physicals will be valid for an entire year of sports.

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.

***Please note that no athlete will be placed on a team until the online payment and registration has been received.
