CYO Basketball is an instrument of the New Evangelization and is concerned with the growth of the Christian individual. CYO basketball should offer the opportunity for the physical, spiritual and mental growth and maturity of all the individuals involved. Victory is something we all strive for throughout our lives. In CYO basketball, victory cannot be measured only by the record of wins and losses; it needs to be seen in light of Christian maturity and development as well.
