The Spirit of St. Louis Games

Each parish participating in the CYC program is invited to send at least one 8th grade boy and girl to the games. These players join with other players from their CYC District to take part in friendly competition with teams from the other Districts.  The Spirit Games currently take place in Soccer, Volleyball and Basketball.
The players and their families serve as living examples of the spirit and principles that the CYC has endeavored to teach the youth of the Archdiocese for more than 75 years.
Like Charles Lindbergh in the Spirit of Saint Louis, they have learned that with hard work and team work, dreams can come true. I Believe I Can Fly is more than just a song title. It is the way to success.
Our Players and their families bring to these games and the St. Louis community a love of the game and a spirit of sportsmanship that has made St. Louis renowned as a great sport city. They are an important part of the “Spirit of St. Louis."
