CYO & Rugrat Athletics

As one of the larger parishes in the Diocese of Cleveland, St. Barnabas offers many sports for students and parishioners in grades K-8. CYO sports begin in grade 2 We offer “rugrat” sports for K-1 that are focused more on instructional-based scrimmages.

The goal of the CYO sports organization is to provide young people in our Diocese the opportunity to experience spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional growth through participation in a variety of sports in a competitive arena through four key areas.

Inclusiveness - CYO Athletics shall foster the development of inclusive communities with God as their center through the acceptance, uniqueness, and appreciation of every athlete as a player on God's team.

Spirituality - CYO Athletics shall enhance the spiritual development of CYO athletes through their participation in a pre-game prayer, a post-game prayer, Team Mass Sunday, and teaching our Faith through our example.

Dignity - CYO Athletics shall contribute to the dignity of each athlete by accepting one another through compassion, respect, patience, kindness, humility, and understanding.

Service - CYO Athletics shall nurture a spirit of selfless service by providing opportunities and challenges to children as they learn about themselves and others by becoming more productive members in their parishes and communities.
