Our Lady of Grace Travel Basketball Program is organized by the Nassau/Suffolk Catholic Youth Organization (CYO). This program is competitive and tryouts are
held for each team, each year. Selection to a team is not guaranteed.

This program is open to Boys and Girls in Grades 5 – 8 only. Practices are held 1-2 times per week at a local school gym. Games are scheduled by CYO and are generally played once a week, with half of the games played at a home gym, the other half played away at other parishes/gyms.

Girls Basketball Season runs from October – January (Tryouts held in September)
Boys Basketball Season runs from November- February (Tryouts held in October)

** PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR TRYOUT DATE INFORMATION **

We would like to thank all of our current coaches and assistant coaches that give so much of their time to make this program a success. Without them, the program cannot exist.

We are looking to expand on our program going forward for next season. We need people to step up! If you are interested in volunteering to coach one of our Basketball Teams and you would like more information, please contact Mary-Beth for a Girls Team at mbldub@gmail.com or Joe for a Boys Team at ologcyojv@gmail.com.

 


 

Our Lady of Grace’s CYO Mission

To encourage our youth to appreciate and share their God-given athletic talents with
their community in a nurturing and respectful environment that promotes gospel values
among athletes, parents, coaches and referees.

 

ATHLETE’S PRAYER

Dear God,
Let me play well, but fairly.
Help me to learn something that matters once the game is over.
Let competition make me strong, but never hostile.
Always let me help my opponent up.
Never catch me rejoicing in the adversity of others.
If I know victory, allow me to be happy; if I am denied, keep me from envy.
Remind me that sports are just games.
If through sports I set an example, let it be a good one.
