Service Learning Projects

The projects will focus on three main forms of service: Serving the Environment, Serving People, and Serving the Community.
CYO Academic Policy
CYO athletics exist to provide opportunities for youth to participate in activities under conditions that are safe.
The St. Agatha CYO club expects all players to follow the expectations on the Player/Parent/Coach contract.
Regular attendance in school is also mandatory in order to participate in CYO sports.
Any student athlete not in school by 12:00 pm will not be eligible to play or practice that day.
A doctor’s excuse or prior arrangement excuse with your coach and Athletic Director is an exception. If an athlete is unable to attend all weekly practices, the coaches will use discretion as to whether the athlete participates in the weekend contests.
