Dear CTK Coaches and Families,
Welcome to another exciting year of Christ the King CYO Basketball! I hope that you are all enjoying the program so far and are as excited as I am with several teams playing their first league games this weekend. I know the kids are working hard and are eager to lace up their shoes and get going!
We are very fortunate to have such a strong program filled with great volunteers. I want to thank everyone for all their time and efforts. The countless hours coaches and parents put into this program never ceases to amaze. This ministry would not be a success without all of you. Thank you!
For those of you who were able to attend one of the CYO masses this past weekend, the message was clear. Success for our program will not be based on winning. Rather the positive experience the kids will enjoy will come from being a part of a team, learning new skills and demonstrating good sportsmanship. To me, if these goals are met, then we’ve all done our job well.
Some final thoughts as we prepare for game time:
- Please cheer, and cheer appropriately. Not just for our kids, but for the other teams as well.
- Support your teams, your coaches, the referees and the fans. You are all part of the game and it should be a positive experience for everyone!
- Remember, this ministry is about the children. Let them enjoy the spirit of competition and teamwork.
I look forward to watching as many games as I can this season and to all the success ahead! Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime during the season.
