St. Veronica proudly participates in the Northern Virginia Junior Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) sports leagues, which are an important component of youth ministry in our parish.  CYO activities foster cooperation, respect, sportsmanship, responsibility, leadership, competitiveness, fairness and courtesy.  CYO Sports programs are open to students of St. Veronica Catholic School and/or students attending CCD at St. Veronica.

Fall Cross Country:  The Fall Cross Country season is underway.  Registration remains open through September.  Participation includes two practices per week, three diocesan meets and a team jersey.  XC is limited to grades 2-8 and runs through early November.

Winter Basketball:  St V has participated in CYO winter basketball since its inception.  Despite not having a gym, our school has been well represented at all levels of CYO Basketball each year.  We have won the highest honor from CYO, The Sportsmanship Award, multiple times!  In addition, our teams have worked hard to go on and win divisional championships each year.  Open to students in grades 3-8; no experience is required; minimum of 8 students to form a team per grade, per gender.  Coaches needed, no experience required!  The season runs mid-November 2019 into early March 2020.  Expect one game per weekend and two practices per week at a school close to St V’s.  Registration will open in late September and run until early November.
