Resurrection CYO will offer a Travel League for our 5th grade boys and girls from mid-October through mid-February. 5th grade teams will play inter-league games against parishes across Westchester County. By design, our 5th Grade program allows players the opportunity to improve themselves through practice and competitive game exposure. There is a focus on development, sportsmanship and equitable play. 5th grade teams will remain generally the same. Keeping rosters consistent from 3rd & 4th grades builds teamwork, camaraderie, and teaches loyalty and how to work through problems. With that said, we will have new players added to the program and will balance teams as needed. Success should not be based solely on winning or losing, but should be understood in terms of participation, enjoyment and self-confidence.
Resurrection teams practice weekday evenings, generally once a week and league games are played against other parishes on the weekends. The 12 game season schedule is created by the Westchester/Putnam County CYO Director. League games start in late November and end in mid-February. There will usually be one game per weekend. League playoffs are held upon the conclusion of the regular season in mid-to-late February. The practice and game schedule will be available two weeks before season start.
Minimum playing time is one quarter. Resurrection CYO aims for fair playing time for each player and we rely on the judgment of our coaches. Player attendance and active participation in practices are requirements for participation in games.
