Christ the King CYO Track & Field
Welcome! We are a CYO track program for second through eighth grade athletes in the Pleasant Hill/Martinez/Walnut Creek area. Out team combines boys and girls from the Christ the King, St. Catherine, and St. Stephen parishes. We compete in the Diablo Valley Catholic League, which is Section 1 of the Oakland Diocese.
Our practice season begins in February, and meets take place on Saturdays from March through early May. Signups are held in January. Elementary and middle-school athletes living within the boundaries of the three parishes, or who attend the school or religious education programs are eligible to participate on our team.
CYO cross country is running now! Practices and meets run from August through October. See our cross-country page for more information.
The 2013 season ended with the presentation of team awards at our annual picnic. Congratulations to all athletes, and I hope you had a great season regardless of your award status.
If you missed the picnic and have an award or ribbons to pick up, please email me to arrange a pickup. See you for cross country and in 2014!
