CYO Coach’s Pledge 

Upon my honor as a CYO Coach, I pledge myself to the following: 
To guide each player to be a better Christian and a better citizen. 
To be ethical and sportsmanshiplike in my coaching conduct 
towards all athletes, officials, spectators and coaches. 
To motivate each athlete to compete according 
 to the rules at all times. 
To teach each athlete, especially through my own 
examples, to be humble 
and generous in victory and proud and courteous in defeat.

Coaching Clearances and Resources

All employees and volunteers in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia are required to have the appropriate background checks to provide a safe environment for our children. These checks include a PA state criminal background check and Child abuse Check.

Beginning July 1st, 2015 the state of Pennsylvania, due to new legislation to protect our children, is requiring all volunteers to obtain these clearances along with an FBI clearance or signing the disclosure statement as stated below.  

Volunteers must provide the following clearances

Volunteers in the archdiocese are also required to attend a "Protecting God's Children" seminar and to take an online reporter training seminar. 

Before coaching any CYO team, all coaches (head and assistants) must: 
• Complete all the above mentioned Clearances and attend the "Protecting God's Children" seminar.

• Attend the in-person Coaches Orientation Seminar
