CYO Fall Sports Sign Ups are Now Open!
Registration for all CYO fall sports (Cross Country, Soccer, Volleyball, Cheerleading, and Robotics) is now open to all 5th through 8th graders. To be eligible to play one of these CYO sports, your child must be a registered parishioner at St. Stanislaus Church and attend either St. Stanislaus PREP or attend a Catholic school (including private Catholic academies). Go to www.wagdogs.com to register. St. Stanislaus CYO fall registration will be closing at the end of July. Please send all questions or comments to ststanscyo@comcast.net.

Attention all students 5th through 8th grade: Registration for the 2016 Corpus Christi Cougar football program,  JV (5th/6th grade) and Varsity (7th/8th grade),  is open through July 31 for members of Corpus Christi, Saint Stanislaus, Mary, Mother of the Redeemer and Saint Rose parishes. Visit www.corpuscyo.com to sign up. Programs are competitive but designed to allow all kids to play in games with an A & B schedule based on skill level. If your child is interested in learning the game of football, the Cougar program is a great place to play, participate in a CYO environment and have some fun. Energetic coaches needed at both the JV and Varsity levels. Please contact Paul Moretski (Corpus Boys AD) at pmoretski@yahoo.com  or Dave Saulino (Corpus Football Coordinator) at  dwsaulino@comcast.net if interested or if you have any questions.
