CYO Athletic Director for Transfiguration - Bill Myers
It’s CYO time and we are getting ready here at Transfiguration. If you see our Athletic Director, Bill Myers around campus introduce yourself. He gives his time and talent which is a treasure to so many of our youth here at Transfiguration.
Thank You Bill!
Transfiguration’s philosophy of athletics and recreation is one of invitation and participation. We encourage everyone who wishes to use our Parish Center and participate fully. We do not have any team play that requires making cuts or limiting the participation of many in favor of the few. We recognize the competitive world our young people are raised in and we believe that Transfiguration must be a place for kids to play and families to recreate.
Pope Paul VI said: "Sports well understood and practiced …. contribute to the development of the whole person because it demands generous effort, careful self-control, mastery and respect for others, complete commitments and team spirit. these values contribute to the building of tomorrow's well-ordered society which we have characterized as the 'civilization of love'.
It is with great pleasure that the basketball committee has united to provide constructive opportunities that lead to positive youth development through CYO Athletic Services. It will be our mission to provide a program that emphasizes the proper ideas of ethical conduct and sportsmanship. We want to offer all children in the parish the opportunity to develop their spiritual, emotional, and physical well being as a team player. We will emphasize that an athletic event is "just a game" and will provide coaches and adult role models who will instill the proper respect, courtesy, and leadership that our young people need and deserve.
In return we expect respectful, courteous, children who will represent well our parish to others and provide for others by their community service hours and outreach opportunities.
Together, the basketball committee, young Transfiguration players, and all our generous volunteers will work together to build a program we are proud of and is worthy of the Church of the Transfiguration name!!!
CYO basketball seeks players from grade 3rd to 12th!
CYO basketball registration for the 2019-2020 season will open on October 1 (September 14 for Parishioners). The registration packet can be accessed HERE.
Transfiguration has a terrific program for youth in grades 3 through 12 for boys and girls. The CYO Basketball Program starts in October and runs into February. It is a program whereby teams will play other parishes throughout the Diocese. This is a program for parishioners, per CYO rules. Non-parishioners are allowed to play when the need arises to round out a team.
Play will be on Saturdays and Sundays (dates and teams TBD).
Our philosophy is to learn the game, teamwork, sportsmanship, as well as have fun. There are no cuts as everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy being involved.
We need coaches, managers, team parents & volunteers to work with the young people as well as the administration of the program.
