Social Media Policy

The CYO of the Archdiocese of New York recognizes the advancement of technology and how it can affect in a positive way the lives of those participating with CYO.

We also recognize the following:

  • Words transmitted using the internet and related technologies are considered “published materials”, and, as such, are available for worldwide access, and in addition are considered “public documents”; 
  • Using this technology to publish opinions and comments which are obscene, works against the values of dignity and respect for each person, or brings harm or ridicule to the individuals targeted as well as to our CYO community and is contrary to the mission of the CYO.
  • The values and dignity and respect for every person apply to all our contacts and interactions with each other – whether in person at games, practices or events, or by virtual means;
  • Therefore, The CYO of the Archdiocese of New York prohibits players, coaches, spectators and family members from using technology in irresponsible or negative ways related to their CYO participation.
  • The CYO will hold all users of the technology responsible for their published words if they can be determined to adversely affect individuals, teams, parishes or schools, sports or CYO officials, team members or families.
  • Those affiliated with CYO who do use technology in a manner that is contrary to our mission will face disciplinary action up to and including suspension/dismissal.
