CYO Sports is one component of a parish's comprehensive youth ministry program which enables the partnership of parents, coaches, priests, religious, teachers, and adult leaders to manage and support a sports program that allows youth to grow in their relationship with God and come to better understand themselves and the Catholic Faith.
We coach football to make a difference in the lives of athletes. Coaching Youth Football well is about being prepared and having a sound philosophy. It’s about understanding what the critical success factors are in youth football and setting the practice priorities to address those factors. Ultimately, the lessons our players learn from our program will carry over and play a big part in the success they find in life. Our staff is always encouraged to teach the game while teaching the athletes how to respect and love each other. By stressing values such as self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership and good sportsmanship we can expect every athlete to be a part of the team in every way. We want each member of our program to be something far better than the vision they have of themselves. It is simply our job to put them in the best possible position for success on the field and in life. We coach to win, we believe winning is fun. We believe that if you build a strong team of coaches, parents and players and set out to learn, encourage and have fun, the winning will automatically follow. Beyond winning, we believe strongly that a football Coach has a great opportunity to be one of the most influential adults in a young persons life. It’s a great responsibility that myself and my staff take very seriously.
