Eileen Doherty Volleyball Tournament - August 21-25


A group of South Central district volleyball folks got together and decided to honor Eileen Doherty by starting a volleyball tournament in her name.  All the proceeds from the tournament will go to the Eileen Doherty Memorical Scholarship Fund.  The tournament is for 5th - 8th grade boys and girls teams.  Matches will be played at Sacred Heart-Valley Park, St. Paul-Fenton, Holy Redeemer and Mary Queen of Peace in Webster Groves.  The Finals will be played at Sacred Heart on August 24 & 25.  Registration deadline is July 31st.  CLICK HERE for a registration form.

Eileen moved to St. Louis from the Bronx, New York only 12 years ago, and in that short time she became a passionate supporter of CYC Sports.  Not only did she coach volleyball, basketball, softball, track and field, but became the parish lay director and South Central district volleyball coordinator.  Her energy and enthusiam was contagious!

Archdiocesan Golf Championship

The CYC Archdiocesan Golf Championship Tournament will be held Saturday, June 27th at Pheasant Run Golf Course, hosted by the West County District. The boys will start their rounds at 8am, girls will start at 10am. All golfers should report to the course 45 minutes before tee time. 7th and 8th graders will play the front nine and the 5th and 6th graders will play the back nine. Each of the five districts can send up to four representatives for each division of play. That is a 160 golfers in the championship out of the 2200 CYC golfers that play during the regular season. Good luck to all!

A special thanks to Dick's Sporting Goods for donating contents of gift bags to all the golfers.

What do Jen Wilson, Angela Anderson & Pat Conley have in common?

Well for one thing, they are all $174 richer since they took the online Positive Parent course!  Jen was our May winner.  Angela won in April and Pat was our first monthly winner in March.  YOU could be our next winner!  All you have to do is CLICK HERE and take the 27 minute course.  IT IS FREE, right now, thanks to a grant from the St. Louis Sports Commission. 

We would like all CYC parents to take the class, which we feel completes the Player (Protecting God's Children), Coach (Coaching to Make a Positive Difference) and Parent triangle.  This course will give you some techniques and strategies to use before, during and after your child's game. 

As an extra bonus, the CYC is holding a monthly drawing to win $174 (strange amount... it is a reminder that this is the 74th year of CYC Sports).  Everyone that has taken the course since February has their name in the hat.  Your name stays in the hat each month of the drawing.  Our last drawing will be November of this year.  So the sooner you complete the class, the sooner your name goes in the drawing. 

Don't wait for soccer, volleyball or basketball season to start.  Take it now!  And good luck!
