The following information is from Gerry O'Connor.
St. Joseph’s CYO is now accepting registration for both girls and boys in grades 2 to 12 for the 2012-2013 season. CYO basketball is open to all girls and boys who are parishioners at one of the local area Catholic parishes or attend a Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Newark.
Though originally started as a shared parish ministry between St. Joseph’s Parish in Maplewood and Our Lady of Sorrows Parish in South Orange, the program has grown to now include Catholic families who live in Maplewood, South Orange and Millburn but send their children to Catholic schools such as St. Rose of Lima in Short Hills, Blessed Pope John in West Orange, Aquinas Academy in Livingston, Good Shepherd in Irvington, Oak Knoll and Oratory Prep in Summit along with every public elementary and middle school in the South Orange-Maplewood School district.
With the addition of the new high school division, St. Joseph’s anticipates having over 125 players participating on one of 12 teams this season that will play in the Union County CYO Youth Basketball League. The high school division is open to players who are not on the freshman, JV or Varsity roster of the high school they attend.
Starting in October, teams will begin to practice once or twice during the week and will play games on weekends at St. Joseph’s Parish Gym beginning around Thanksgiving and ending in mid March.
Registration will continue until October 1. Additional information on registration, fees and registration forms can be found on the St. Joseph’s CYO Basketball web site at www.eteamz.com/stjosephcelticscyobasketball
Adult volunteers are always needed to help coach the teams. For more information about the CYO program or to send in a coaching resume, contact Gerry O’Connor, St. Joseph’s CYO Athletic Director, at email@example.com or call 201-341-4289.
