CYO Sports at Valley Catholic School

- Elementary and Middle School

Valley Catholic Elementary and Middle School both participate in the local Portland-area CYO program. As part of the program, our students learn the value of teamwork, good sportsmanship and fair play while developing fundamentals and skills.  All eligible youth are given the opportunity to participate.The following sports are offered to all students, regardless of skill level.


Football (1st - 8th grade) - Begins in August

Volleyball (3rd - 8th grade girls only) - Begins in August

Hot Shots Basketball (1st & 2nd grade) - Begins in September



Swimming (K-8th grade) - Begins in October

Basketball (3rd - 8th grade) - Begins in November



Track & Field (3rd-8th grade) - Begins in March

Lacrosse (1st - 8th grade) - Begins in March

The football and lacrosse teams are comprised of players from several local Catholic schools. The football team is the Region 6 CYO team, and the lacrosse team is Westside.  They are not Valley Catholic teams.

In addition to the CYO sports, our elementary and middle school also offer cross country in the fall. This is a non-CYO sport and organized by current Valley coaches or staff members.


CYO Volleyball Registration is now CLOSED for the 2014 season.  Volleyball is offered to girls in 3rd-8th grade.  There will be two practices per week and games will be played on Saturdays, beginning in September and ending in late November.  Neither practice or game schedules are known at this time.

Hot Shots Basketball is open and the deadline to register is Sept. 1.  Hot Shots is offered to boys and girls in 1st and 2nd grade.  The teams are co-ed.  There are no weekday practices.  The games will be played each Saturday September-November with a 30 minute practice preceeding each game.  The schedules will not be determined until the fall.  If you are interested in coaching a team, please contact me for certification information.
