St. Mary of the Mills is part of the Archdiocese of Washington’s Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) program. At different times throughout the school year, we offer soccer, cross country, baseball, and basketball for St. Mary of the Mills' students and parishioners' children in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. Additionally, we offer T-ball for our students and parishioners' children in grades Kindergarten through 2nd grade.
The Archdiocese of Washington’s website notes:
CYO programs seek to help young men and women appreciate Christ’s presence in their opponents, use their physical gifts and play fairly and enthusiastically, both on and off the field. Through programs and training linked to parish life, CYO offers young people, coaches and their families another opportunity to work together in communion, showing the world a new vision of “competition” in sports.
We have reached capacity for all 2017-18 basketball teams and we are no longer taking registrations for this season.
We offer Fall Soccer, Winter Basketball, and Spring T-ball for grades K-2 for all skill levels!

Congratulations to our 14 and Under Girls Tournament Team (2016 - 2017) for CYO Basketball! In the championship game against St. Pius (Bowie), our girls rallied back from a 15-2 deficit to win the game and close out their season undefeated with a 7-0 record. The St. Mary of the Mills team is made up of mostly 7th graders, 12 year olds, who played against 14 and Under teams in Region 4 of the Archdiocese of Washington Christian Youth Organization (CYO) league. These girls didn’t let the age or size of the other teams deter them. They came into every game ready to play hard. They walked away from every game with a win and a great spirit! The Lady Stallions had a great season! We’re super proud of them!
