2021-22 CYO Basketball Update

OUR LADY OF SORROWS MEN'S CLUB

2021-22 CYO BASKETBALL UPDATE


 

October 17, 2021

 

Parents,

 

For those of you not  familiar with the program, Our Lady of Sorrows offers CYO basketball to OLS CCD and School students in the 5th through 8th grades.  We typically begin registrations in September, start practices in October and play games from late November through mid-February.  However, like so many other things in our lives, this will not be a typical year as we make adjustments given the ongoing impact of the virus.  

 

This season, the Archdiocese’s CYO office has informed us that we cannot allow indoor sports for the remainder of October, November and December.  See their letter at this link:  Indoor Activity October Update.  As I am sure you can appreciate, they are taking a conservative stance to support our children’s ability to continue with in-person classes.  However, they have told us to expect a season but with a January 15th start date.  

 

Given that we now have a beginning date, I have begun our planning for the season.  One key item that we’ll need to do is to remove and store the extra furniture and other items in the School’s gym and stage.  These are materials that have traditionally been kept in classrooms but moved so that desks can be spaced out as required.   We will need volunteers for this effort which is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of 11/20 & 11/21.  

 

Another important thing we need to plan for is the daily removal and return of tables and chairs in the gym.  The gym is being used as a cafeteria (again in support of classroom space) so we need that activity daily in order to hold practices and games.  We will set up a volunteer schedule, but we’ll also need one or more volunteers to coordinate the overall effort.

 

You should also be aware that there are protocols we’ll need to follow this year.   The full protocol is available at the Archdiocese CYO website (www.cyony.org) that you can reach at this link:  CYO Basketball Protocols. Two major items we have to implement include a prohibition on spectators for all games and players will be required to wear masks at practices or games.  Please take a few minutes to read through their document so that you’re not surprised once the season begins. 

 

Finally, I will post this letter as well as any future updates on the OLS sports website at www.olssports.com.  At this point, I anticipate that we will start our registration for the upcoming season in mid to late November and will again reach out when we’re ready to do so.

 

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or if you’re ready to volunteer for any of the above activities.  

 

Sincerely,

Steve Parento

OLS Athletic Director
