EVANGELIZATION

 The Mission of the SA Archdiocese CYO athletic Program is to empower athletic leaders to animate Gospel values in catholic youth Sports, encouraging young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.

In a world that focuses on a win-at-all cost attitude, where professional athletes have moved from role model to entertainer, and when kids are just not having fun anymore, catholic youth sports should be offering more:

  • A safe, healthy place to play, physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually;
  • A Place where lessons are learned in winning and lessons are learned In losing.
  • A place where all are welcomed and respected for who they are, for what they can or cannot do;
  • A place where Catholic Gospel values, character and faith matter;
  • A place where GOD is present.

The Eight Types of Assets: Building Blocks for Life

 

SOCCER SEASON

  • Support
    Young people need to experience support, care, and love from their families and many others. They need organizations and institutions that provide positive, supportive environments.
  • Empowerment
    Young people need to be valued by their community and have opportunities to contribute to others. For this to occur, they must feel safe.

VOLLEYBALL SEASON

  • Positive values
    Young people need to develop strong values that guide their choices. These values include caring, honesty, integrity, and justice.

BASKETBALL SEASON

  • Boundaries and expectations
    Young people need to know what is expected of them and what behaviors are “in bounds’ and “out of bounds.”

TRACK SEASON

  • Constructive use of time
    Young people need constructive, enriching opportunities for growth through creative activities, youth programs, congregational involvement, and quality time at home.
  • Commitment to learning
    Young people need to develop a lifelong commitment to education and learning.

BASEBALL & SOFTBALL SEASON

  • Social competencies
    Young people need skills and competencies that equip them to make positive choices, to build relationships, and to succeed in life.
  • Positive identity
    Young people need a strong sense of their own power, purpose, worth, and promise.

What can you do to build these assets in the lives of young people you know. Future inserts will give ideas of what we can do in our homes, congregation, and community.
