SPRING SEASON INFORMATION
Spring sports begin the week of March 18th. There will not be practices the week of Spring/Easter Break (March 28-April 7th). League play for all sports ends May 19th. 7/8th Grade Softball and baseball -teams that qualify for playoffs will continue to play and could finish as late as June 2nd. Lacrosse ends June 2nd. Track ends late May. Athletes are expected to be available to play for all tournaments, games and practices.
Please remember that teammates are counting on your child to participate in all of the team events, not just the game and practices that fit into their schedule. Parents along with their children need to make choices. If that choice is to split priorities between two activities, we ask that your Holy Family CYO team be the priority during each season. Your child needs to understand that they are making a commitment to their Holy Family teammates to attend all practices and games.
