Valley Catholic Elementary and Middle School both participate in the Portland-area Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) program. As part of the program, our students learn the value of teamwork, good sportsmanship and fair play while developing fundamentals and skills.  All eligible youth are given the opportunity to participate. CYO sports are offered to all students, regardless of skill level.

*The football, baseball and lacrosse teams are comprised of players from several local Catholic schools. They are west side teams and not strictly Valley Catholic students. Please refer to the CYO website for information and registration.

In addition to offering CYO sports, our elementary and middle schools also offer cross country in the fall. This is a non-CYO sport and is organized by Valley Catholic staff.


To register for participation in any CYO sport, visit the CYO/Camp Howard website.
