*Students are allowed to play two CYO sports in a season, meaning girls can play both volleyball and run Cross Country and boys are able to play football and run Cross Country if they wish. Runners are required to participate in at least one Cross Country Meet during the season in order to participate in the CYO Cross Country City Championships.

**CYO Sports are open to ALL students of the parish regardless of which school they attend, public or NPS. Please spread the word!

We would love to have parents stay during any practice running or walking; it is a great example for your kids and helps us keep more eyes on them.
