Late Registration - there will be NO late registrations.

*Once rosters have been forwarded to the Archdiocese office no new players can be added.

Season - The Region 11 soccer season runs from August 1th through October 31st. Practices may not begin before August 1th and all games and playoffs must be completed before November 1st.

Division - There are three divisions for the Junior CYO Soccer program. The Novice teams include all players in 3rd and 4th grades, Junior Varsity team includes all players in 5th and 6th grades and the Varsity team includes all players in 7thand 8th grade. 


Evaluations -

  • Boys and Girls of both levels will have evaluations to determine placement.
  • There are no tryouts for the instructional level.
  • There will be at least two evaluation practices that will be facilitated by the assigned coaches.  After the evaluations are completed, the coaches will determine the rosters for each team based upon individual abilities.
  • The schedule for evaluations will be communicated through the soccer coordinator and soccer coaches.

Practices - Practices will be held at Nativity of Our Lord or Munro Park.


Games - Home games are played at Nativity of Our Lord, Munro Park or at the opposing team field.


Game Schedule - A scheduling meeting is planned and attended by all coaches participating in Region 11.  Schedules are not usually completed and confirmed until the beginning of September, usually the first week of school.  If your player plays on a travel team it is important to forward their travel schedule to their coaches prior to the meeting.  Every attempt is made to avoid conflict.


What to Bring - All athletes should wear the appropriate cleats, shin guards, the appropriate size soccer ball and water bottle to all practices and games. Novice soccer ball size is #4, Junior Varsity is #4 and Varsity is #5.


Uniforms Uniforms are included in the registration/uniform fee and each athlete will keep their uniform.  The uniform will be used for 2 seasons.  Upon registering for the 2nd season, athlete will only pay the registration fee.  If the athlete requests/requires a new uniform, one must be selected at the time of registration in season 2.


Pictures - A professional photographer will be taking team and individual pictures.   These pictures are optional. However, we do ask that all team members attend the photo date in order to have a complete team picture.  The scheduled Fall Sports picture date is in September.  The times will be distributed by the coaches as well as in the school newsletter, parish bulletin and posted on the Junior CYO website.


Tournaments - Any CYO team that wishes to play in a tournament may do so but registration fees must be covered by the attending team.  Prior to a tournament commitment, the coach must be given permission by the Athletic Director.
