Random Acts of Sportmanship!

Updated Wednesday March 7, 2018 by CYC Office.

As the Catholic Youth Council we take pride in our long tradition of providing children through out the St. Louis area with the opportunities to compete with their parish and friends in a variety of sports. For more than 75 years the CYC has been a ministry of the Catholic Church in St. Louis, sponsoring Archdiocesan playoffs, recognizing league, district and area wide champions.

In addition to recognizing winners of games we feel it is imperative for the CYC to search for and recognize acts of sportsmanship at our athletic events. As a Catholic organization we must train our children to display their Christian values in all parts of their lives, especially during athletic competition. In an effort to recognize and reward sportsmanship among CYC participants, the Random Act of Sportsmanship (RAS) program was initiated in 2009.

We ask everyone to get involved with this program by keeping your eyes open for those Random Acts of Sportsmanship by players, coaches, officials and fans.

The idea is to “catch” players, coaches, officials, and even fans performing Random Acts of Sportsmanship at games.  If you see a RAS, please contact the CYC Office, so those folks can be recognized and rewarded for being good sports. Please be on the lookout for Random Acts of Sportsmanship, and report them to the CYC Office!!

Simply send an email describing the act to: RAS@cycstl.net

Visit the Random Acts of Sportsmanship page to see stories of coaches, players, officials, and fans who live out the CYC Spirit everyday!!

We believe GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP MAKES GREAT SPORTS!
