CYC Promotes the Triangle - Win $174 in one of 9 monthly drawings

Yes, the CYC wants every parent to take the new 27 minute, online Positive Parent Participation Course! 

No, it is not mandatory at this time.

Yes, it is FREE right now.  Thanks to a generous grant from the St. Louis Sports Commission.

No, it will NOT be free forever.  The grant will pay for the first 1120 parents that take the course.  Almost half of those FREE courses have already been used.  If you wait too long, the FREE courses will be gone and it will cost you to take the course.

How do you win $174?  The CYC has committed to encouraging all parents to take the course.  So the CYC will hold Monthly drawings to win $174.  If you have taken the course, your name will be in the monthly drawing.  Not just for the month you take the course, but for every subsequent month through November 2015.  So if you take the course TODAY, you have 9 chances (March - November) to win $174!  Another reason not to wait too long!

Why $174?  It could have been $150 or possibly $200.  However, this is the 74th year the CYC has been in existence.  So the odd amount of $174 is to remind everyone that next year will be the 75th year of CYC Sports!    

Parents, do your part and complete the Triangle...and if you're lucky, you will win $174 in one of nine monthly drawings!  CLICK HERE

RAS - Random Acts of Sportsmanship - RAS

   

     2 RAS stories: First, thanks to Queen of All Saints 6th Grade Girls coach, John Hea, for acknowledging the St. Mark 6th Grade Girls FANS.  Here is what Coach Hea writes, "During the game the parents were very encouraging of the girls, no yelling or complaining or excessive coaching from the stands as you sometimes hear as a coach.  But what struck me is what I would say, the most sportsman-like parent group I have come across in 12 years of coaching.  I witnessed them telling my girls of Queen of All Saints, 'Good game girls'.  Additionally, as I came over by the spectator bench to leave, I had no less than 5 different parents from St. Mark's say to me 'Good game coach!".  I was taken aback as I have neot heard that from the opposing team before, let alone a team tha just lost to us.  I was literally speechless.  St. Mark's should be VERY proud of this group of parents, models for all of us."  This is only the third time we can remember fans being cited for their sportsmanship since we started the RAS program.  This is great to hear.  We hope all our CYC fans take heart and follow suit.

     Our second RAS goes to Louis Mrnjavac, a 5th grade boys player on St. Michael's basketball team.  The team has 9 players, and in this their last game of the season, 8 of the 9 boys had scored a basket.  This was quite an accomplishment because on of the thier players has never scored through all his games in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade.  So late in the game, Louis, who had scored, volunteered to come out of the game so the one boy who had not scored would have a chance to score before the game was over.  What a wonderful act of looking outside yourself to help a teammate join in the fun.  As it turns out that boy did get a basket, and everyone on the team scored in their final game of the year. 

     We invite you to share any Random Act of Sportsmanship you see while attending a CYC game.  Just email a description of the act to buzzswanston@archstl.org .  We love to share them with the rest of the CYC gang who didn't have the chance to see it in person.  Good Sportsmanship makes Great Sports!
