RE:  CYO 2020 Track & Field Season Officially Canceled

With regrets, the CYO Track & Field Advisory Board has officially canceled its 2020 season. Since the League did not cash any checks that it received in March during its registration period, all of those checks will be shredded by our Treasurer, Jim Schreyer, this Friday (Good Friday), April 10, 2020.

Jim will videotape the shredding and make the video available as requested. If the Treasurer of your Booster's organization specifically requires the return of the physical check, please send Jim Schreyer an email at ctcyotreasurer@gmail.com no later than the end of business on Thursday, April 9, 2020, requesting the return.  Please provide the person's name and their postal address in the email. 

Please hold Thursday, January 28, 2021 for our annual Kick-Off Meeting.  Thanks for helping us keep Track & Field alive and well in Cincinnati.

2020 Season Delayed

posted Mar 16, 2020, 6:56 AM by Jim Waters

As of this hour, the following three high schools have informed us that they are not permitted to host events at their Track & Field facilities.  They are Oak Hills High School, Woodward Career Technical High School, and Northwest High School.  

These new developments will force the cancellation of the following Meets:

·  Oak Hills Youth Track & Field Invitational on Friday, March 27, 2020 

·  CPS Athletics Track & Field Youth Invitational on Saturday, March 28, 2020

·  MND Cougar Invitational on Friday-Saturday, April 3-4, 2020

We will continue to keep you apprised of other cancellations, but we are hopeful that we can start our season after Easter.
