Athletic development and opportunities

We offer a competitive experience, great sportsmanship, fair play, and a chance to participate with students from other area schools and parishes. We believe that structured sports and activities help children establish confidence and self-esteem, develop social skills, learn good sportsmanship and teamwork, set and achieve goals, and learn from positive role models.

CYO – Catholic Youth Organization

CYO offers a selection of competitive sports opportunities within the Portland-Vancouver area, including basketball, volleyball, swimming, track and field, and cross country; however not all schools offer all sports. Find more information on the CYO sports programs and other CYO opportunities.
