St. Jude Athletics




St. Jude participates in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) athletic program helping our children develop healthy habits, good sportsmanship, team work and build self-esteem. Our youth develop the values and character of Christ while participating in our myriad of sports offerings such as football, basketball, softball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, cheer, wrestling, cross country and track.

The SJYAC would like to provide clarity to the members of our Parish on the requirement of sport physicals to participate in a CYO sanctioned sport.   With that, the CYO "does not" require high school student athletes to have a physical on file to participate in a CYO sport. However, the CYO does mandate a sports physical for all grade school CYO participants.
Although the CYO does not require that High School CYO Athletes obtain a physical to participate, the SJYAC strongly recommends that every athlete participating in a CYO sport has a physical. The SJYAC respects and understands that as parents it is your choice to have your son or daughter have a physical.  If you have any additional questions, please contact Jasen Owen at 317-753-5453.

In addition to the physical form, CYO now requires all athletes and parents to be aware of concussion and cardiac risks and to complete their concussion/cardiac form.  Please read the following links, then sign and submit the acknoledgement form.
Physical forms and concussion/cardiac forms can be submitted to the Parish Center, to the Youth Center drop box, or you may scan your physical form and submit it directly online to:  


It is the policy of St. Jude Athletics that no refunds will be issued.
