Status of 2020 Fall Sports (Soccer and Cross-Country) and Other Sports Participation Options
With the Archdiocesan CYO's announcement that the 2020 CYO Fall Sports Season has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no CYO Soccer or Cross-Country this fall.
The St. Jane CYO Board is exploring options to allow parish children to participate in skills training, drills, and games in a safe, parish-based, in-house environment. More information will be provided as it becomes available. To assist with this initiative, please contact St. Jane CYO President James Hoffman at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 240-205-0041.
Alternatively, for anyone interested in youth soccer outside the CYO (i.e., not associated with St. Jane de Chantal), the St. Jane CYO soccer commissioners can provide information on what is available. Since registration in these non-CYO leagues is ongoing, please contact Anthony Aquino (email@example.com) and/or Pat Jordan (patjordan1@gmailcom) as soon as possible.
Please note that either approach (i.e., in-house @ deChantal or a non-CYO league) will be a volunteer-driven initiative. Please consider serving as a coach or assistant coach. Coaching as part of the in-house option (or for possible CYO 2020-21 Winter Sports), requires Virtus certification.
New Archdiocesan CYO Training Online Training Requirements for St. Jane CYO Coaches
Any individual coaching a team in an Archdiocesan CYO league will now be required to take, and provide course completion information regarding, an online youth ministry coaching clinic and two online youth sports health courses: the Play Like a Champion Youth Ministry clinic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's course on concussion prevention and treatment, and the National Federation of State High School Associations' course on heat illness prevention. Details on how to access these training sessions and provide information to the Archdiocesan and the St. Jane CYO to ensure receiving credit for course completion can be found under the "For Coaches" link.
