Every CYO sporting event starts with teams, coaches, and fans praying the Hail Mary.  

Saint Agnes participates in the Northern Virginia Junior Catholic Youth Organization (NVJCYO), a member organization of approximately 45 parishes from the Diocese of Arlington which organizes sports for students in grades 4 through 8.

Saint Agnes offers the following sports:

  • basketball (grades 4-8)
  • cross country (grades 4-8)
  • tennis (grades 4-8)
  • track and field (grades 3-8)

Coaches for CYO sports are volunteers from the school and parish community. Practices are held at Saint Agnes; games and meets are held on weekends at Catholic elementary schools throughout Northern Virginia.

Many students also participate in sports programs offered through Arlington County and private organizations, including soccer, basketball, football, baseball, and softball. These organizations make every effort to place students from the same school on the same team. Information about these sports programs are distributed through Saint Agnes to school families.

Saint Agnes also offers Girls on the Run©, a non-profit prevention program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. This program addresses all aspects of girls’ development — their physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual well-being.
