Our youth sports events are designed for young people in years 7-13 and are great platforms to meet other young people from the Diocese in a casual, family-friendly environment. CYT sports events are highly anticipated and promote fellowship and fun.

Teams of 6 – 8  Young People will represent their youth group, school, and faith community group and compete for the CYT Sports Day Trophy. Prizes are given out on the day alone, including Best Dressed/Costume and Fair Play Award.  So bring your A-Game.
