CYO

AthleticsThe St. Anastasia sports programs are open to all children who attend The Divine Wisdom Academy or live within the boundaries of the St. Anastasia Parish.

Participants are not required to be parish members. We do not discriminate based on race or religion. Certain sports have age or aptitude requirements, which are indicated in the sports pages ahead.

CYOByLawsClinics are available for younger children who reside outside of the Parish and do not attend the school if space permits. Waivers (permission to join a St. Anastasia team even if one does not live within the boundaries of the St. Anastasia Parish) can be obtained in limited circumstances for CYO level sports. Please inquire about eligibility if you have any questions.

CYO registration for the 2017-2018 school year is now open

Registration for the 2017-2018 school year is now open!  All registrations will be handled through our online system which can be accessed at: https://st-anastasia-cyo.siplay.com

Please note the registration close dates for the following sports:

  • Soccer – July 31st
  • Fall Track – July 31st
  • Basketball – September 5th
  • Soccer Clinic – September 15th
  • Basketball Clinic – October 15th
  • Swimming – November 1st
  • Baseball March 1st
  • Flag Football March 1st
  • Spring Track March 31st

We strongly encourage everyone to register their children as soon as possible. Registration prior to the dates above do not guarantee a spot!!! We are capping the number of spots on each team (based on sport) and spots will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. We are looking to avoid the situation of fielding teams with too many players, which leads to an unpleasant experience for the child and puts undue burden on our (volunteer) coaches. If there is excessive demand and enough time given to react, the CYO can field more than one team in an age group. In the event that we are able to accept a registration for a sport past the date above, a $25 late fee will be assessed.

Volunteer coaches are the lifeblood of our organization. As a thank you for this commitment, the enrollment fee for the child of the head coach in the sport coached is waived. This rebate will be issued at the beginning of the season.

If you have any questions about the online registration process or a specific sport, please contact us via email at:

Regards,
The Saint Anastasia CYO Board

A HUGE congratulations to Coaches Bonavita and Blackman and the St. Anastasia 7th Grade Boys Basketball team. They are the 2015 champions of CYO Brooklyn/Queens Dioceses!!! The parish is so proud of them.

After a long season in the most competitive division of their level, a 51 team playoff bracket in the 7th grade division began in late February. In the early rounds, St. A’s rolled off victories against Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Mercy, and Our Lady of Blessed Sacrament. In the semi-finals they faced their arch rivals in St. Kevin’s. St. Anastasia fell behind early but came back to move on to the finals. In the finals, they faced last year’s finalist St. Francis de Sales. This very tough and disciplined team from the Rockaways jumped out to an early lead. However, St. A’s made the proper defensive adjustments and exploited de Sales weaknesses to even the score. After a nail-biting 4th quarter with the teams exchanging baskets, de Sales hit 2 key free throws with 1.7 seconds left to send the game into overtime. St. A’s was down 2 players because of foul trouble but the speed, athleticism and heart of the team was too much for the tired de Sales team to handle. St. A’s was put at the foul line 3 times in the last 58 seconds of the game and was clutch in making their free throws. St. Anastasia pulled out a 45-39 victory to become champions!!!

The team dedicated their championship to William T. Smith Jr, father and close family member of the team.
