The CYO Girls Basketball Program offers young girls the opportunity to compete in Nassau & Suffolk in Grades 3-8. (430+ teams in 2011-2012)
CYO offers basketball leagues at individual grade levels. Our 3rd & 4th grade level is a non-competitive instructional league. (10 games).
There are no won and loss records, no standings, & the score is turned back to zero at the end of each quarter of play. Coaches or officials are encouraged to talk to the players during the game and instruct them.
Grades 5, 6, 7, & 8 invite 3 levels of play:
A) Highly Competitive
CYO offers a 12 game season + playoffs at each level.Â Teams play within their own league and those qualifying for the playoffs will meet teams outside of their league during the first several rounds of playoffs. Playoffs are a single elimination tournament with the season culminating on Championship Day, in early February.
Following the crowning of champions, our CYO champions compete vs. the champs from Brooklyn/Queens in a series of exciting match-ups.
