The Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) is a youth sports program for grades 4 to12.  Participants play for the parish in which they reside, and play competitive games against other parish teams on Long Island.  Players learn basketball/volleyball skills, team concepts, self-esteem, and sportsmanship.  CYO continues to strongly maintain a commitment to Catholic values and excellence in sportsmanship.


  •  GIRLS GRADES 4 to 8...Season is October thru January 
  •  BOYS GRADES 4 to 8...Season is November thru February
    • Boys Tryouts hosted in September


St. James hosts teams for girls volleyball for grades 6-9 (based on interest).  Tryouts are held in January for the February to April season.  Check back for specific dates.


GIRLS TEAMS 2016-17 are established.

Boys tryouts have been completed.  The results will be posted Friday 09/23 in the evening.

Please understand that we go thru great lengths in the evaluation process in order to be as fair as possible. This year we once again had impartial evaluators rate the boys based on their tryout number.  The evaluators are Coaches at other levels of CYO, college basketball players, Varsity Basketball players (Grades 4) and Coaches from other districts.    Unfortunately we cannot accommodate every boy.  If your son did make a team, I highly recommend he plays in Three Village Basketball.  They are having registration on 09-27 at Nassakeag from 6-8 PM in the cafeteria.  If your son was chosen for a team, please understand that we cannot accommodate requests to change teams.   Good luck and the Coaches will be receiving the roster information early next week and be in touch.
