Welcome to CYO Region 1!

Welcome to the web site for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's Catholic Youth Organization's Region 1. Our Region consists of fifteen parishes located in Northeast Philadelphia, and as of Fall 2010, Cheltenham, Pennsylvania.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia's Catholic Youth Organization is a component of the Office for Catholic Education.

The CYO program at the regional and parish level is staffed entirely by volunteers giving their time to help the children of our parishes learn fair play, teamwork, and sportsmanship as well as our Catholic principles.

The Coordinator of Athletic Ministry for Region One is John Doherty. John can be reached by E-mail at  

Our Region strives to follow the Archdiocese's Mission Statement, which states:

CYO Sports is one component of a parish's comprehensive youth ministry program which enables the partnership of parents, coaches, priests, religious, teachers and adult leaders to manage and support a sports program that allows youth to grow in their relationship with God and come to better understand themselves and the Catholc Faith.

Such a program:

  • employs a healthy and enjoyable competition to promote the sharing of gospel values among parents, athletes and coaches.
  • assists parish leadership in nourishing the emotional, spriritual, social and physical needs of young people.
  • encourages young people to appreciate the gifts that they possess, and challenges them to share these gifts with their community.
  • allows youth to witness the life of Christian Discipleship and in their coaches and adult leaders.
  • encourages youth to become responsibile members of their faith community.

Thanks for visiting our site, and we hope you enjoy your visit. Please come back often!
