St. Mary's CYO Fishkill - Basketball Philosophy

Our program is intended to serve the youth of our parish from 1st grade through high 
school.  It should teach the fundamentals of sportsmanship and teach respect for  
other players, referees and coaches.  Our coaches should always set an example 
for our children to follow, and should make playing an enjoyable and fun experience 
for our children, win or lose.
Success in our program is determined by children who continue playing throughout
the years, by children who show high levels of sportsmanship and ability while
playing in our local high school programs,by high school students who play in our 
Friday night league, just because they love playing and by former participants and 
adults who come back to donate their time by coaching or refereeing year after year.
