Welcome to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Youth Athletics Initiative Webpage!
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.

Perhaps the quickest way to “get” the Charter is to download the most popular pieces the Athletics Commission would love to see in the hands of every coach, parent, and athlete. Feel free to download, print and reproduce these items as much as you like for use within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.  For more, click on the Victory Gear link at the left.
