|COVID-19 General Guidelines & Best Practices|
In order to be prepared for the fall season, please download and read our updated guidelines to learn about the general changes that will apply to all CYO sports.

The Eligibility Request Form is to be used for one individual athlete seeking permission to play on another member’s team.
The Eligibility Group Form is only to be used for a group of athletes from the same CYO member seeking permission to play on another member’s team.

The form contains the physical, release form and emergency medical authorization information.
The complete pre-participation form is valid for thirteen months from the date of the physician’s signature.
