CYO Policies and Procedures
Conduct— All persons associated with CYO - players, coaches, coordinators, spectators and officials - are expected to conduct themselves in a positive manner which exemplifies the Christian values that should be fostered in our young people. These values include a mutual respect for and consideration of others. Their background should be of the highest moral order and they should receive the unequivocal recommendation of their coordinator and moderator.

An official may eject from a contest or playing area any participant, coach, coordinator, parent or spectator who displays unsportsmanlike conduct during an event or contest. The ejected individual(s) must leave the playing area immediately and may not return. Note: The playing area shall be defined as any location in sight or sound of the contest. If an unusual location gives rise to any ambiguity, the official’s representation shall prevail.

The Disciplinary Committee will thoroughly review all complaints of inappropriate behavior on the part if players, coaches, spectators or officials, provided:
A) It is received by the CYO office in writing within 72 hours of the event becoming known.B) It is signed or initialed by the parish coordinator for that sport, or the official.
