CYO Manages these sports teams, supports the coaches, and handles all the scheduling.
Where The Money Goes
OLG CYO donated $10,000 towards the building of The Walmesley Center.
OLG CYO paid $2,000 toward the floor refinishing of the gym in August of 2014.
OLG CYO donates tickets to the OLG school auction during the Italian Dinner raffle.
OLG CYO hosts a golf tournament each spring and donates half of the proceeds to the In-Parish Help Fund. In the eight years of the tournament, this has raised over $15,000 for the Parish In-Parish Help Fund.
OLG CYO gives scholarships to families needing financial assistance for participating in CYO sports at OLG. No child is ever turned away because of inability to pay.
OLG CYO gives two scholarships of $500 each to an 8th grade boy and girl each graduation as Scholar Athletes winners. The money is paid directly to the winner's high school to offset tuition.
The reversible basketball uniforms cost $40 each.
OLG CYO spends about $2,000 toward equipment each year. (Soccer socks, whistles, basketballs, volleyballs, baseballs, bats, hats)
OLG CYO offers free players’ clinics and day camps to our athletes and coaches each year. We pay to bring in specially trained instructors to help teach our teams to improve their skills.
The teams’ fees for the six sports offered to our athletes to participate in the Seattle CYO sports league is over $15,000 each year. We are able to keep our participation fees lower than other area leagues due to our outstanding volunteers and fundraising efforts of the Italian Dinner and Golf Tournament.
CYO doesn't have to pay the parish money to use the gym but donates money to help offset the lights and heating bills because of our usage of the gym.
