Catholic Youth Organization (CYO)

CYO of Long Island is a public benefit community organization that enhances the lives of Long Island youth and their families, by providing affordable, quality, educational and recreational services. Rooted in the Catholic tradition, CYO provides these services in an inclusive and non-discriminatory manner respecting the culture and faith of all.

CYO of Long Island was established in 1958 to provide athletic opportunities to children of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Since then, they have grown to serve over 25,000 children a year across Long Island. Their programs include:

  • Basketball
  • Bowling
  • Chess
  • Field Hockey
  • Flag Football
  • Soccer
  • Swimming
  • Track
  • Volleyball

Their initiative, CYO Steadfast, is designed as a collaborative program between CYO and parishes to enrich their parish and community. The goal is to strengthen bonds between families, parishes and communities while lessening the socio-economic gap between individuals.
