The Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) was founded in Chicago in 1930 to provide the youth a safe place to play and participate in organized athletic competition. CYO’s mission is to bring youth together, to foster strong relationships in families and communities, and to help them lead more fulfilling and rewarding lives through sports.
The Maryville CYO sponsors organized athletic programs throughout the year, notably basketball, cross country, track and field and cheerleading, utilizing facilities such as Catholic schools, YMCA, Chicago Park District and Chicago Public Schools.
Each year, approximately 3,000 youth, ages 8 – 19, participate in CYO events in the Chicago area. Maryville sponsors and directs this program on behalf of the Archdiocese of Chicago. It is open to young people of all faiths.
