Catholic Charities CYO basketball is tipping off another win. Enrollment is up for the 2012-2013 girls and boys basketball season, says CYO Director Edwin Broderick.
The teams provide exercise, a healthy recreational outlet, guidance and a sense of community for children and teenagers throughout the more than 4,000-square mile Archdiocese of New York.
Here are some numbers to cheer:
- 1600 teams throughout the
Archdiocese of New York
- 637 teams in Westchester County
- 403 teams in Staten Island
- 251 teams in Rockland County
- 82 teams in Orange County
- 49 teams in Ulster County
- 37 teams in Dutchess County
“Our success and growth would not be possible without the dedication and support of our 4,000 volunteers, the hard work of our county directors and the leadership and support of Catholic Charities Executive Director Msgr. Sullivan and Catholic Charities Community Services Executive Director Beatriz Diaz Taveras,” Mr. Broderick said.
