The CYO participates in a variety of athletic leagues sponsored by the Archdiocesan CYO/Youth Ministry Office. Sports offered include: Co-ed Volleyball, Co-ed Cabbageball, Boys' Flag Football, Girls' Flag Football, Boys' Basketball, and Girls' Basketball. Teens listed on their high school's varsity or JV roster with the LHSAA are not eligible for that specific sport in CYO.  All other teens are invited and encouraged to get involved as a way to meet other teens, compete in an atmosphere of Christian sportsmanship, and enjoy some recreation time.  



MAY 31, 2021 UPDATE: We are registering four teams for the league.  Two practices will be held during the week of June 7.  Games begin the week of June 14.  We do not have a game schedule yet from the archdiocese.  All plays should monitor e-mail and text for cabbageball updates.



TEAMS: St. Dominic CYO has four teams in the league.  Each team is roughly equal size and with a male/female balance to comply with league rules.  We worked to keep friends together but please flexible with where you were placed.
