How old does my child have to be to play basketball?
Saint Raymond's CYO Basketball is for boys and girls in grades 3-8. All boys and girls in grades 3-8 are invited to sign up. .
Can I register in person?
Registration is on-line only through our website. If you have any difficulties registering contact Athletic Director Tim Sbranti at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are the eligibility requirements?
You must meet one of the following criteria to play for St. Raymond.
- Attend St. Raymond School.
- Be enrolled in St. Raymond Faith Formation
- Live in the SR Parish boundaries (Dublin City Limits, or in San Ramon from MonteVideo south including Windemere if you live off East Branch Parkway). If you are not sure please check the Diocesan website: https://22403.sites.
****** If you register your child and you do not meet one of the three eligibility requirements a $50 refund fee is assessed.
How long is the season?
Evaluations will be held in early-mid September. Season practices will begin the first week of October. The regular season is 10 games and there is also a post-season for teams who make the playoffs. The season generally runs from late October to mid-February.
Where and when are practices?
Practices begin in October and there are generally two practices per-week depending on gym space. Practices take place in Dublin and San Ramon. Practice days and times are dependent upon the coaches schedule. Please remember that our coaches, board, and athletic director are all volunteers.
Can my child pick his team or be moved from one team to another?
No. All teams are final. We want to create fair and balanced teams. Once your child is selected for a team, there are no refunds. Much goes into making this volunteer program work, which includes reserving gym space and other costs.
Are players allowed to register at a higher grade level in order to play up a grade level?
No. Any player who attempts to play-up either through registering incorrectly or misrepresenting their child's age is subject to removal from the program with no refund. Please understand this rule exists to serve all children. Catholic Youth Organization is a ministry of volunteers serving children in a manner that serves the common good and embraces the values of the Gospels.
What are the fees?
The fees for the 2022-2023 season will be $325 per player. There are discounts for 3 or more players in the same family.
Registration may close early if our program reaches capacity early. No Refunds will be given after September 1st for those who registered on-time. A $50 fee is assessed for cancellations prior to the September 1st deadline. Please understand that we incur costs that must be paid prior to the start of the season.
Do you offer financial assistance?
Financial assistance is available, please contact the Athletic Director if you need assistance. Those who receive financial assistance based solely on need are required to donate time to the league.
Will the league provide a uniform?
No, there will be an additional fee of $40 for the uniform shirt and shorts which your child will keep and can use for multiple years. (There is a possibility this fee will change this season. I will update the site when I receive final pricing.) For returning players with uniforms we will ask for the number so that we do not duplicate numbers.

- First Day of Practice: Monday, September 11.

Thank you for your interest in participating in athletics at St. Raymond's. Our Parish sponsors the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) as one dimension of its total ministry to youth.
Athletic programs can help young people to practice Christian attitudes and responsibilities. In CYO programs, emphasis rests not on the number of games won or lost, but on the participants' attitude in victory or defeat. Learning how to lose is just as important as learning how to win. Learning how to win graciously is more important than winning itself.
CYO programs serve the needs of all youth. They enable the gifted to excel, but they give all participants the opportunity to compete and improve their skills. All participants should respect others on their own team and the opposing team.
Participants in our program should have a spirit of loyalty to CYO ideals, to the Parish, to the coach, and to the team. They should learn patience with and tolerance of those of less ability. They should feel grateful to all who make the CYO program happen, while their speech and actions should reflect Christian values while competing.
Ultimate responsibility for the success of CYO programs lies with the volunteer adult participants. Adults involved in CYO must remember that the program exists for the Christian growth of young people. Conduct of adults must always model Christian values and virtues. When adults remain faithful to the Christian ideals of CYO, they exercise a unique and rewarding ministry to the young with whom they come in contact.
"Run to win," St. Paul advises (I Cor. 9:24). In CYO athletics, all who compete in a spirit of fair play and sportsmanship are winners. Welcome aboard, and best wishes to all for a great season.
