CATHOLIC YOUTH ORGANIZATION
St. Brigid hosts a Catholic Youth Organization under the direction of the Archdiocese of San Antonio. Led by parent volunteers, this program offers youth friendly sporting events.
CYO is a sports ministry program for youth ages 3-16 that emphasizes friendly competition through good sportsmanship and Catholic values. Led by adult volunteers who serve as positive role models and mentors within an athletic setting, the program uses sports as a venue to teach young people important life lessons and skills. Sports include: soccer, basketball, baseball/softball/t-ball, volleyball, flag-football, track, and most recently: cheer.
