Nativity Stars Basketball


The Arlington Diocese announced a decision at the end of October 2020 on the 2020-2021 CYO Basketball Season. The Arlington Diocese has determined that they will not be able to offer the NVJCYO basketball program for the normal season (December through March). Even if the safety concerns could be addressed, their survey results determined that parishes with gymnasiums indicated that most spaces are not available because they are being used for classrooms during COVID-19. This makes it impossible for them to run the league at this time. This includes the Father Martin Center where we would normally hold practices.
If health conditions permit later this Spring, then they will investigate again to see the possibility of a shortened season or even just a possible tournament structure for the upper grades (especially 8th graders for whom this may be their last chance to play together or at all). This would not happen until at least March or April if this was to occur.

“Sports contribute to the love of life, teaches sacrifice, respect and responsibility, leading to the full development of every human person.”


Nativity is proud to participate in Catholic Sports, NVJCYO through the Diocese of Arlington.  Our CYO Basketball is an energetic program with about 125+ participants and 20 volunteers.  We welcome boys and girls in grades 3 through 8 registered in either Nativity’s Religious Education Program with good attendance or enrolled in Nativity Catholic School.
