The Archdiocese of Milwaukee sponsors sports leagues for Catholic youth in high school as part of the its comprehensive approach to youth ministry.
CYM sports programs are intended to:
- offer opportunities for young people to associate with dedicated adults who not only foster athletic skills but serve as models of Christian living,
- emphasize sportsmanship and teamwork.
- foster the personal and spiritual growth of teens,
- build community and healthy relationships among participants,
- enable the gifted to excel, and the less gifted to participate and improve,
- serve the needs of all youth and reflect the diversity of the community.
Currently, the archdiocese sponsors Volleyball and Basketball Leagues. CYM teams are parish-based.
