The Archdiocese of Philadelphia Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) is partnering with the University of Notre Dame’s “Play Like a Champion Today, Character Education Through Sports” program. This partnership is part of a national initiative to support schools and sports organizations in making sports safer, more fun and developmentally enriching.
The archdiocesan CYO hosted a youth coach clinic on March 28 for approximately 75 new CYO coaches conducted by Kristin Sheehan, director of the Play Like a Champion program, and Matt Hasher, director of CYO Athletics for the archdiocese.
CYO will host Play Like a Champion clinics approximately four times per year. The CYO offers participation in 12 fall, winter and spring sports for approximately 3,000 children per sport across the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Approximately 500 new CYO coaches are oriented each year.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
