Archdiocese of Cincinnati Charter on Catholic Youth Athletics

Cincinnati Track CYO Works in Partnership and Compliance
 with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati's Charter on Catholic Youth Athletics
 
After literally years of consultations, drafts, conversations, and revisions, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati's Charter on Catholic Youth Athletics was promulgated by Archbishop Dennis Schnurr on March 1, 2014. The promulgation signals a fresh moment for parish-based and elementary-age youth athletics, and Cincinnati Track CYO supports the full Charter and the Charter’s mission statement:
 
"Catholic Youth Athletics furthers the mission of the Catholic Church by providing sports experiences for youth that are firmly rooted in the Catholic faith tradition, based on the goals of Catholic youth ministry, and aligned with the evangelizing mission of the Catholic Church."

The Charter in its entirety is available at the bottom of this web page in a Portable Document Format (PDF). However, direct links to important Charter Sections are provided here for quicker access.  They are--
