Dear CYO Athletic Director,
2021 CYO CERTIFICATION WORKSHOPS
BOYS’ CYO BASKETBALL, GIRLS’ CYO BASKETBALL (Diablo East, Tri Valley, West Diablo Leagues), GIRLS’ CYO VOLLEYBALL
Attached is a flyer announcing the 2021 CYO Coaches Certification Workshops. The flyer lists workshops for CYO Basketball and a workshop for Girls’ CYO Volleyball.
CHANGES! There is a significant change in CYO Certification for coaches. This year, only NEW COACHES are required to attend a workshop for certification. RETURNING COACHES are NOT required to attend a workshop but are required to be certified by registering on line. All CYO coaches must be in compliance with diocesan Safe Environment requirements: Virtus training completed after July 1, 2018 and Live Scan fingerprint clearance.
NEW CYO COACHES MUST:
- Attend CYO New Coaches Workshop. The workshops listed on this flyer are the only workshops for certification for Boys’ CYO basketball, for Girls’ CYO basketball (in the Diablo East, West Diablo and Tri Valley leagues) and a workshop for Girls’ CYO Volleyball. Volleyball coaches are encouraged to attend the Volleyball Workshop, but may attend any for certification. Cheerleader moderators/coaches must attend a CYO Basketball Certification Workshop. Coaches do not need to register in advance of attending a workshop.
- Complete Virtus Training by logging on the Virtus Website: www.virtusonline.org. Training must have been completed after July 1, 2018.
- Be Live Scan fingerprinted and cleared for the Diocese of Oakland. There will be fingerprint opportunities at each of the New Coaches Workshops
RETURNING CYO COACHES MUST:
- Have been certified to coach CYO in the 2019-2020 school year.
- Complete the Online Registration Form for Returning Coaches (only)
- Basketball Coaches Returning Coaches Registration Form: https://www.oakdiocese.org/returnng-cyo-basketball-coaches-registration
