|St Johns CYO - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)|
What is the St John's CYO program?
sports is a non-denominational component of St
John Nepomucene’s comprehensive youth program which enables
partnership of parents, coaches, priest and adult leaders to manage and
support a sports program that allows our youth to grow physically and
emotionally within the community. St. John's CYO youth sports programs
have been serving the community
for over 20 years. Although we want the children to develop their
skills in whatever program they choose, the most important aspect of
our program is for all participants to have FUN!

Division assignments are made by age: Micro - under 6; Primo - under 7; Novice - under 9; Junior -under 12; Interleague - 12 & up
What is the equipment requirement?
A uniform consisting of shorts, shirt and socks must be purchased; however, they can be used for future seasons. In addition, cleats and shin guards must be purchased. These can be found at any sporting goods store.
Uniform orders are generally distributed by the coaches at their practice prior to the season's start. If an order or registration is late then the order can be picked up at the 1st scheduled game.

In the event of inclement weather the website will announce the cancelation of the games. All game are then played the following day, Sunday, at the same time and field. If the games are cancelled on Sunday as well, these games will not be made up.
When are practices held and can I request a certain day of the week for practice?
As the coaches are volunteers themselves, with their own schedules, they determine practice dates. These are not tracked by league administration. Parents are encouraged to work with other team member parents to work through transportation issues. Practices are held at the same school location and are at the discretion of the coach. Typically they are held once a week running 45 minutes to 1 hour. Unfortunately, we can’t accommodate requests for specific days of the week for practice.
Can I request a particular team or another player's team?
Requests can be submitted for very special circumstances. For example, children with disabilities may require a specialized placement. Understand, we can only make teams equitable when a limited number of requests are accomodated.
When are jackets ordered?
Jackets are only offered for sale in the fall season.
Return to the topWho can I can contact for additional questions?
As a 100% volunteer organization we need the help of parents in order for our program to exist. Every family will be required to sign up for a task. If you can do more - GREAT! Our volunteer committee will assign you during the season.

register my 2nd grade boy or girl?
No, we are not registering any 2nd grade players. They can not play against another player two grades up. It would not be fair to either player.
Yes, they can come late or miss that night's practice or game. We have limited gym time and we are unable to alternate gym time.
Can we put our child with their friends?
In the 3/4 grade level we try to keep individual elementary schools together. If you have a certain request please let us know at registration table. At the 5/6 grade level individuals are picked by coaches after the evaluation night. Brothers and sisters are kept together.
The traveling is in Suffolk and Nassau county only. The hours of the game are usually after 6pm when traffic is lighter.
You will get the schedule as soon as we receive them. CYO Nassau and Suffolk decides the schedule and hands it out to coordinators, who then distributes them to the coaches.
