The purpose of the Union County CYO Youth Basketball League is to give young athletes the opportunity to compete in a competitive environment against players from other Catholic communities.  Developing skills, sportsmanship, teamwork, and discipline are the objectives of this Christian league and to act as Jesus calls us to act. The goals will be attained through the concerted efforts of all players, coaches, officials and the Archdiocese of Newark’s Office of Youth Ministry CYO Athletic Program.


  • Basketball playing rules will be governed by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).


  • The Union County CYO league specific rules are to be at the scorer’s table every game and in every coach’s bag.
