Catholic Youth Sports


At St. James Cathedral School, athletics is a strong component of our student life. As such, we are proud to participate in the Catholic Youth Sports (CYS) program. Our Athletic program builds confidence through teaching responsibility, self-esteem, and discipline guided by our strong Catholic values. Through peer instruction, training, and encouragement, players are taught to be lifelong champions both on and off the field of play. Every player is developed based on their skill level with a focus on teamwork and sportsmanship. For more information about CYS, please contact Lisa Watson at or visit the CYS website directly.
