Welcome to St. Raymond CYO
Dear CYO Parents,
Our Basketball registration will open on June 1st for returning players (those who played for St. Raymond CYO last season). New players registration will open on June 15th.
Our Basketball Evaluation and Registration Process
Evaluations: Evaluations will be held sometime in late August or early September, date to be determined once gym space is made available. It is important to register your child prior to evaluations. Unfortunately, we cannot allow any player to participate in evaluations unless the player is registered. We will not have walk-up registration so please register on time and bring your receipt with you.
Thank you for your participation in CYO and we look forward to another exciting year of St. Raymond CYO Basketball.
Our Cross Country Registration Process
Cross country is open to all and will open on June 4th and close on August 1st. There is no evaluation for cross country.
St. Raymond CYO Basketball
How old does my child have to be to play basketball?
Saint Raymond's CYO Basketball is for boys and girls in grades 3-8. All boys and girls in grades 3-8 are invited sign up. We are no longer accepting 2nd graders in the program due to a lack of gym space.
Can I register in person?
Registration is on-line only through our website. A registration link will appear on the right side of the website when registration opens. If you are unable to register on-line you can contact Sean Kullman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What are the eligibility requirements?
You must meet one of the following criteria to play for St. Raymond. Please note, returning players will have a two week window to register prior to the general registration. This period is only for returning players (a returning player is a player who played for St. Raymond CYO the previous season.)
****** If you register your child and you do not meet one of the three eligibility requirement a $50 refund fee is assessed.
How long is the season?
Evaluations will be held in late August or early September. Season practices will begin the first week of October. The regular season is 10 games and there is also a post-season for teams who make the playoffs. The season generally runs from October to late January or mid-February.
Where and when are practices?
Practices begin in October and there are generally two practices per-week depending on gym space. Practices take place in Dublin and San Ramon. Practice days and times are dependent upon the coaches schedule. Please remember that our coaches, board, and athletic director are all volunteers.
Can my child pick his team or be moved from one team to another?
No. All teams are final. We want to create fair and balanced teams. Once your child is selected for a team, there are no refunds. Much goes into making this volunteer program work, which includes reserving gym space and other costs.
Are players allowed to register at a higher grade level in order to play up a grade level?
No. Any player who attempts to play-up either through registering incorrectly or misrepresenting their child's age is subject to removal from the program with no refund. Please understand this rule exists to serve all children. Catholic Youth Organization is a ministry of volunteers serving children in a manner that serves the common good and embraces the values of the Gospels.
What are the fees?
The fees for the 2018-2019 season will be $265 per player. There are discounts for 3 or more players in the same family.
After July 15th all registrations will be waitlisted. Registration may close early if our program reaches capacity early.
No Refunds will be given after August 1st for those who registered on-time. A $50 fee is assessed for any cancelations prior to the August 1st deadline. Please understand that we incur costs that must be paid prior to the start of the season.
Do you offer financial assistance?
Financial assistance is available, please contact the Athletic Director if you need assistance. Those who receive financial assistance based solely on need are required to donate time to the league.
Will the league provide a uniform?
No, there will be an additional fee of $38 for the uniform shirt and shorts which your child will keep and can use for multiple years. (There is a possibility this fee will change this season. I will update the site when I receive final pricing.) For returning players with uniforms we will ask for the number so that we do not duplicate numbers.
