CYO Basketball League Information

Updated Wednesday October 30, 2019 by St. Timothy School CYO Basketball.

St. Timothy School is a participant in the Northern Virginia Junior Catholic Youth Organization (NVJCYO).

The NVJCYO, has a member organization of approximately 45 parishes from the Diocese of Arlington. It organizes a Track Meet, a Basketball organization consisting of 10 leagues, Cheerleading, Softball, Baseball and Tennis.

The mission of the NVJCYO, through its member parishes, is to organize sports programs for parish youth from 3rd through 8th grades throughout the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, to reinforce Catholic values taught in parish schools and religious education programs.  It is an important component of the comprehensive approach to youth ministry in the Diocese.  The programs administered by NVJCYO are meant not only to encourage healthy physical activity but also to play a significant role in the development of Catholic values in the youth of the Diocese and these activities should foster cooperation, respect, sportsmanship, responsibility, leadership, competitiveness, fairness and courtesy.
