Our Mission & Purpose
The purpose of the St. Aloysius CYO basketball program is to provide an opportunity for young people to play basketball in a structured environment. We are here to foster the development of the whole child in the sense of a sound mind in a sound body.
Through this goal we strive to offer a high-quality basketball experience within an age appropriate competitive environment. We aim to do this in the most pleasant and safe surroundings available and with the complete cooperation and support of those adults who share our aims for our young people.
Note this team is separate from the Trinity Academy basketball program. For Trinity Academy basketball please go here.
