“Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.” – 1 Corinthians 10:24-27
Sports are a very important part of youth athletics and getting teens involved in the Catholic Church. One way to get teens more involved is through the Archdiocesan Youth Athletics Initiative or CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) basketball. Below, is information on how to promote Catholic Youth Athletics and information from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
