After canceling last season, the Arlington Diocese Northern Virginia Catholic Youth Organization (NVJCYO) Basketball League is planning on resuming operations for the 2021-22 season! Children in grades 3 through 8 that attend Nativity School or Religious Education classes can now register. Nativity Stars Basketball also needs volunteer coaches! We will also have a table at the October 16 & 17 Parish Ministry Fair to recruit new players and coaches.
Regular registration will be from October 11-25 for a registration fee of $85. Late registration will occur from October 26 to November 2, but will include an additional $15 late registration fee for a $100 total. The fee can be paid via PayPal or check. If paying by check, make it payable to Church of the Nativity with “CYO Basketball Registration” in the Memo Line.
There is a $50 uniform deposit (check required), which will be returned or destroyed upon successful uniform return. Please make the check payable to Church of the Nativity with “CYO Basketball Uniform Deposit” in the Memo Line.
Please prayerfully consider becoming a Nativity Stars basketball coach! We currently need a volunteer head coach for 3rd, 4th and 8th grade Girls and (at least 1, hopefully 2) assistant coaches for the following teams:
The weekly coaching commitment is usually one 1.5-2 hour practice per week and a weekend game, plus any administrative work (team rosters, uniform/gear pick up, communication with parents).CYO Coach Information
