A. Baseball and Softball -- Circumstances permitting, again this Spring the St. Jane CYO will sponsor baseball and softball teams in the Rockville Baseball Association (RBBA) with team formation based on the results of player availability polling done by the Softball and Baseball commissioners.
1. Softball player registration for two teams -- a U10 team for 4th-5th Grade Girls and a U13 Team for 6th-8th Grade Girls -- is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 22, 2021. See the Softball page for registration details.
2. Baseball player registration for one team -- a 7th Grade Boys team in RBBA's Midget NL division -- is scheduled to begin on March 22, 2021. See the Baseball page for registration details.
B. Soccer -- Circumstances permitting, the St. Jane CYO will sponsor U10 and U12 Girls 8v8 Archdiocesan CYO league soccer teams, with play beginning in mid- to late-April. Registration is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 6, 2021. See the Soccer page for registration details, including special registration fee payment instructions.
C. Track and Cross-Country -- The St. Jane CYO currently doesn't anticipate participating in Columbus League Track or Archdiocesan CYO Cross-Country this spring.
D. Other CYO Sports. The Archdiocesan CYO also had indicated that if it can obtain appropriate venues, it may conduct 3v3 half-court outdoor tournament format.
Of course, any of these spring sports will depend on circumstances with the COVID-19 pandemic. But St. Jane CYO student athletes and their families can be assured that we will be providing registration and other information whenever sports activities are scheduled to begin.
And please don't forget that CYO sports will continue to be a volunteer-driven initiative, so consider serving as a coach or assistant coach. Coaching requires Virtus certification and completion of the health and safety training sessions discussed below, which can be completed now to ensure coaching eligibility once sports resume this spring or next fall.
