CYO Athletics

                                                                           

                    WELCOME TO CYO SOCCER AND BASKETBALL AT PEACE OF CHRIST PARISH!

     Registration for both our CYO soccer/basketball programs (grades 3/4 and 5/6) is now available at the links below. Please visit these to download, complete and return your registration materials with the appropriate fees to our parish office at: Peace of Christ Parish, 25 Empire Blvd., Rochester, NY 14609. Registration materials will also be available in the back of all worship sites for your convenience. All registration materials and fees for CYO Soccer are due to the parish office by Wednesday, August 9th. 

     Special Note:  Instead of downloading the registration materials from our website, you may wish to register your child in person. This year, CYO Athletics at Peace of Christ Parish will be holding walk-in registrations on Wednesday July 26, and Wednesday, August 9, from 6-7:30 pm at the Parish Office at St. Ambrose Church. Payment is due at registration. These will be the only two times to register for CYO soccer. You can also register for basketball, as you do get a break on payment if your child plays both sports. We are always looking for new players, so spread the news! Know anyone that coaches? We are always in need of willing individuals to volunteer their time in any capacity to help with the kids. We do ask that any adults be CASE trained. See the links below for CASE. Any questions, please contact Tamera Strzepek tamstrz53@hotmail.com 585-729-3748 or Jean Verhagen jean.verhagen@yahoo.com

Chris Desso Award:

 Our annual Chris Desso Award is in honor of the late Chris Desso. Chris was a sophomore at McQuaid High School when he was struck and killed while riding his bicycle home on October 29, 1994. He was a graduate of St. Ambrose and Northeastern Catholic Junior High School . Chris played Eastside Little League Baseball for seven years and participated in CYO Basketball through St. John the Evangelist with his cousins. He was a life member of Boy Scout Troop No. 231 and achieved the rank of Star. Chris had an amazing passion for life that showed by always going the extra mile to help others. The Chris Desso Award is given to one player on each team who caries on Chris's Passion for life and sports.
