10 inches of snow, sub zero wind chills... it must be time to sign up for CYC Lacrosse


This will be the 5th year that the CYC has offered both a girls and a boys Lacrosse program. Each year more parishes join and more teams are formed. Last year we had over 500 CYC lacrosse players. Sign-ups should take place with the spring sports at your parish, or in January and early February. If your parish will not be fielding a team, and you are in 5th through 8th grade you can still sign up to play. Please send an email to and include your Name, Address, Parish, Grade, Contact phone number and contact email address. Please do this before February 10th. Your name will be put on the "LAX Free Agents" list. We will then assign you to the closest parish that need players. Players on the list will be contacted by mid February with their assignments.

Games will begin March 15th and conclude May 18th. Come join one of the fastest growing sports in the St. Louis area. You do not have to have previous lacrosse experience to play. 

CYC Fun at Ambush Game


Nearly 500 CYC players, coaches, family and friends attended the St. Louis Ambush game on Sunday, December 29th.  Fourteen teams were recognized in the pregame ceremony as they walked around the field.  Erika Hampton (St. Simon 8th grade team) kicked out the first ball to Ambush player Mike Roach (former CYC athlete).  The 5th grade Immaculate Conception-Dardenne soccer and volleyball teams sang the National Anthem (a cappella!) very nice girls!  All were treated to a fun, strange, crazy halftime game among area mascots.  The Ambush came back and tied the Syracuse Silver Knights in regulation and treated the crowd to an overtime win!  After the game all were invited on to the field for autographs.  A fun day at the Family Arena.  Consider dropping by and watching the new indoor team.  Over half of their players are are from St. Louis and many grew up playing CYC Sports.


CYC ID Card site back up

As many of you are aware of, the CYC ID Card site crashed on Monday, December 30th.  Good news; site is back up. 
For those of you still needing to order your cards, please made sure that you do that before the January 10th deadline.  After you have completed your on-line order, you will receive an email receipt that will serve as your id card until your actual order has been processed and mailed.  Districts have been asked to forego the checking of id cards for this weekend.  Your district may or may not be following this, as a few have stated that the cards should have been obtained prior to this time.

Also, as a reminder, ALL coaches, need to have attended or taken on-line, the CYC Coaches Training Program.  For those of you needing to apply for a CYC ID Card, you will need to provide your coach's number to proceed with your on-line card order.  This number is given to you when you have completed your training.

Thank you to all those that are coaching and to all those that were bearing with us during the time our web sites were down.
