2019/2020 CYO Season Rosters  


In the spirit of fair play, all CYO Parish Coordinators are required to submit a team roster to the Archdiocese of NY CYO Office before a team's first CYO league game. The roster must include coach, player, and guardian contact information and the following information necessary to determine player and team eligibility: player gender, birthdate, grade, school and parishioner status.

Parish CYO Coordinators may delegate roster submission to coaches, but it is the Coordinator's responsibility to ensure all player information is accurate and complete. 

CYO Team rosters must be submitted on an Excel or CSV spreadsheet with all required fields included.  Rosters will no longer be accepted in PDF or print format. Receiving rosters in spreadsheet format has several benefits to the League:

a) Team Rosters will be added to the County websites and will be accessible by CYO Management for eligibility verification.

b) Parish Coordinators will have secure access to their own parish rosters in order to view, download, or send email messages.

c) Parish Coordinator will be given the option to provide coaches secure access to their specific Team rosters.  If provided, a coach will be able to view or email his/her team roster and receive automatic notification of any game changes affecting the


Timeline for Roster Submission

Rosters are due by November 1, 2019. A team will receive an automatic forfeit on all league games played before a team roster is submitted. Any updates to a roster after submission must be received no later than December 1.  Updates also need to be submitted in an Excel or CSV file.       


How to Submit a Roster

Roster files should be named using the following format: COUNTY_PARISH_SEASON (Example: Westchester_StJoseph_20192020.).  Please attach the roster file in an email and send to


Roster File

Rosters must be submitted on an Excel or CSV file with all required fields included.  It is preferred that each Parish Coordinator include the rosters for all Parish Teams on a single spreadsheet. However, if necessary, each Team's roster may be submitted on a separate spreadsheet.
