Registration is currently underway for 45 positions to form the under 19s and under 15s Long Island Colts boys rugby teams. Season dues are $150.
High school rugby in the USA, a spring sport, is played on a football-size field without helmets, pads or timeouts. A game of rugby typically lasts 60 minutes and all athletes play offense and defense and each player on the field is expected to run like a wide receiver, kick like a punter, tackle like a defensive back, pass like a quarterback and score touchdowns like a running back.

What an exciting season the 8th grade girls soccer team had, coached by John Vitale and what a dynamite way to finish out their very last CYO soccer game. The girls worked hard during the season and have earned 1st place in their division! Most of these girls have been playing CYO soccer since kindergarten and have formed a bond of friendship on and off the soccer field! It has been a lot of fun watching these girls grow up into beautiful young ladies who know the importance of teamwork and also how to have fun on the soccer field! On behalf of all the parents, we would like to thank John for his dedication for the past 9 years and offer congratulations to all of the girls who made this victory possible.
