St. Basil Fall CYO Sports


CYO Grade School Volleyball

Grade School Volleyball (3rd-8th) registration is now OPEN.  REGISTER HERE.  Good luck to all our St. Basil teams this season!
Practices start in August with the first game typically starting on the last Saturday or Sunday of August. All schedules will be posted on the CYO website.  For the younger grades there are 8 games and 10 games for the older grades. CYO offers a tournament at the end of the season for the 6-8th grade teams that qualify. There are also sanctioned CYO tournaments throughout the season.
Update:  We are experiencing very positive growth in the interest in the volleyball program.  As a result, we have a need to add more coaches to the program for the upcoming season.  If you are able to help or know someone who is interested in coaching, please contact the St. Basil Athletic Director, Joe Canzano at (440)465-1850.

CYO Fall Cross Country

CYO cross country is the team sport of distance running for both boys and girls. It gives you a chance to make new friends, exercise and have fun with other children from your parish. It is open to all 1st thru 8th grade parish members from St. Basil. No prior running experience is necessary.
What are races like?
Races (called meets) are held in September and October. The races are held at various parks throughout the diocese. The race courses are usually a combination of trails and fields. We do not run on tracks or roads. Everyone on the team gets to race. Nearly one thousand children from parishes throughout the diocese compete at the meets each week. The races are divided into groups based on grade level and gender.
* Note: See Intramurals Section for more details on our program for girls and boys in the 1st and 2nd grade.
What are practices like?
We practice as a team 3 nights a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday usually, but this will be confirmed prior to the beginning of August) beginning at 6:00 PM from August through mid-October. We encourage you to attend as many practices as possible, but we understand when you cannot attend practice due to other commitments. We begin practice with a prayer, then we warm up, run, stretch, and sometimes we even play games.  The coach and some of the parents run with the team, and that helps. Practice usually last about 75 minutes. Parents are welcome but not required to attend.
What should I do if I am interested?
You can register online at  If you have any questions, please use the contact link below. The fee to run CYO Cross Country for St. Basil the Great is $76 per runner ($24.50 for intramural runners). We must have Medical/Physical Forms completed from each runner by the beginning of August (8/1/2016).   Completed forms can be turned in at practice.
