CTK CYO Track & Field


Welcome!‚Äč We are a CYO track program for all second through eighth grade athletes in the Pleasant Hill/Martinez/Walnut Creek area. No church affiliation is necessary. We compete in the Diablo Valley Catholic League, which is Section 1 of the Oakland Diocese. Our team is sponsored by the Christ the King, St. Catherine, and St. Stephen parishes. Elementary and middle-school athletes living within the boundaries of the three parishes are eligible to participate on our team as are students (including religious education students) at any of the three parish schools.

Our practice season begins on February 2nd, and meets take place on Saturdays from March through early May. Signups are held in January.
