Our Mission

Curé of Ars CYO works hard to promote good sportsmanship and fair play. Sportsmanship is the backbone of the CYO experience. We affirm that the heart of CYO and the key to its success is found in the many volunteers who freely give of their time, energy, resources, and expertise. CYO continues to strongly maintain a commitment to Catholic values and excellence in sportsmanship.
