CYO strives to form fair and balanced teams. CYO Divisions are based on grade and gender. Players are asked to attend their Division's evaluation session to determine their current skill level, relative to their Division. An independent evaluator, and all prospective coaches attend the evaluation sessions. Each year, one American Team, which consists of the most skilled players within a Division, is selected. All remaining players are then selected to National Division teams through a draft process. Please note: There is no American Division Team for the 3rd Grade Girl Division.
Players must reside in the St. Perpetua Parish boundary, or attend St. Perpetua School, or attend St. Perpetua Faith Formation.
Any Player who misses the registration deadline should register for the Wait List. We will do our best to accommodate every potential Player.
