Meet Specifics

Welcome back (and welcome new members). We hope everyone had a great summer! The 2023 CYO Youth XC season will begin on Saturday, SEPTEMBER 24th at Saint Josephs Seminary, 1:30pm. Our first CYONY Club XC practice will be held on Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 20th  @ 6:15pm, Twin Lakes Eastchester. All meets (except the opener) will be held on Saturdays at 10am.

Registration options below, LETS GO CYO!

In 2021 we built a new course on the grounds of St. Joseph’s Seminary in Dunwoodie. We thank Father Cleary for this true blessing. All of our XC meets will be held on the SJS property. Ample parking, historic property, and a beautiful course. 

2023 XC Meet Schedule:

300-400 Meters for grades K – 2

1500/1600 Meters for grades 3 – 5

2000 Meters for grades 6 – 8

ANY KID, ANY SCHOOL:

In true Christian spirit, every child is welcomed and encouraged to participate. No race-day registration tears, and we’ll NEVER turn away a child over forms/fees.

CYONY Club, what is it?:

The CYO Club is NOT a team, rather an opportunity for young runners to learn the sport.  No experience required, and we have runs for all levels. If you don’t have a “Parish Team” we’ll equip you with a nice CYO singlet/jersey. 

While we’ve grown considerably over the last 8 years,  our focus remains the same. As such, there are still NO TRYOUTS. Yes, some are experienced youth runners. There is no screaming, anger or unreasonable demands (but Coach, that 2 mile hill, seriously). We believe in the kid from day 1. We promote a running environment built on enthusiasm, self-belief, hard work, goal setting, determination, good sportsmanship, community awareness, and friendship. There’s always a focus on mechanics, efficiency, nutrition, endurance/strength, speed and trail stewardship. We develop runners.

“My kid LOATHES sports”…PERFECT! Have her/him give us try, no obligation. We’re NOT JOKING, we want the kids that hide from gym, have no understanding/concept of team sports, and/or generally avoid strenuous activity.

CYONY Club Practices:

Practices will be held on Monday’s and Wednesday’s from 6:15-7:00pm dusk. We’ll have a number of adult volunteer running coaches at every practice. The first 10 minutes of practice will consist of stretching/drills/warmup.

CYONY CLUB Experience needed?:

For the long runs, yes. However we include a “guided one-mile” run at every practice for young/new/endurance building runners.

Practice Locations may include:

  • Webster Avenue Trail (New Rochelle between Webster/Twin lakes)
  • Twin Lakes (Eastchester)
  • Saint Joseph’s Seminary, Dunwoodie

Results will be tabulated and awards distributed as quickly as possible at the END of the meet. Medals will be awarded to the top five in each event based on grade and gender grouping. All non-medalists and participants in grades K-2 will receive ribbons. Team medal packets can be picked up by coach only. Unattached athlete can pick up at medal table at END of meet.
