Catholic Youth Ministry has its origins in the Catholic Youth Organization. In 1930, CYO began as a way of involving young people in the life of the church through athletics. CYO continues to exist in the Diocese of Harrisburg as a youth basketball program. Each year over 6,000 boys and girls from 43 parishes play on over 425 teams.
At St. Joseph Parish, we have nearly a hundred students playing on one of our 10 teams led by our 20 coaches. We have enjoyed success in large part because of enthusiastic student participation and unwavering volunteer support. We have seen many of our players move onto playing high school basketball and volleyball and some even move on to the collegiate level.
The St.Joseph Athletic Association sponsors and supports CYO Basketball Grades 3rd through 8th for both boys and girls. Our teams participate in the Harrisburg CYO League. We also sponsor and support girls volleyball for grades 5th through 8th. The girls volleyball teams participate in local Catholic School league.
Current President of the Athletic Association is Josie Knobloch. She may be contacted by phone 443-375-7784 or email email@example.com.
