2. If you are non-Catholic, contact the Catholic parish whose boundaries you live within. Click on "whose boundaries" and you will be able to enter your address to determine which parish that you reside within.

If the parish that you are registered in, or that you reside in is unable to, or does not participate in the CYC program, please contact the District that your parish is in or contact our office (314-792-7256) for further information on placement of players on teams that are participating in the Archdiocesan program.

All players need an official CYC ID Card to participate in the program. You can apply for your card online.
You can find dates for upcoming live ID card sessions here.

All coaches/volunteers must have completed the Archdiocese's Protecting God's Children Workshop, which is coordinated by the Safe Environment Program, as well as have a Missouri Background check done every 2 years, and have read, signed and returned to your parish the Code of Ethical Conduct, These are Archdiocesan requirements that the Catholic Youth Council fully supports. You should contact your parish for details about these requirements and/or copies of the forms.

All Coaches/Managers, Kindergarten-8th grade, in the CYC-Sports program also need to have attended the CYC Coaches Training program, "Coaching to Make a Positive Difference". CLICK HERE to go to the online training course. This class needs to be completed prior to the start of your season, and all coaches completing the program need apply on line for their "Coaching Card" or attend an actual ID Card session.

"Out of respect for the minor age players on our teams, the CYC Sports Department requests that all visitors refrain from publicly posting any videos or pictures of CYC sponsored events unless the visitor has the express written permission from the player's parents or the CYC Sports Department to do so. This includes but is not limited to online photo-sharing and posting videos to YouTube or similar applications."
