Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I have to be a parishioner of St. Norbert’s for my child to play sports?
    • Sports are open to all boys and girls regardless. We have non-Catholics and even Homeschoolers playing on St. Norbert teams. Games are usually opened with prayer. Go Blue!
  • What is a Training League?
    • This is a special instructional league dedicated to skill formation and fun! It is not a part of the Archdiocese CYC but still play teams from other schools in the area dedicated to training. This league starts with Pre-K/K and usually goes through 2nd or 3rd grade depending on the sport.
  • What are the team colors?
    • We are light blue and navy! Uniform shirts are light blue paired with navy shorts and light blue socks. Our specific color is Carolina Blue. Tip for soccer: try adult small tube socks – they will be long enough to fold down over shin guards without pushing them too low on the foot.
  • What is a Parent Work Commitment?
    • The funds you supply during registration for the Parent Work Commitment (PWC) is applied to help defray costs and to get you financially motivated to volunteer! The Athletics Department is fueled by volunteer power. The first and easiest way to get a full refund is to work 3 hours in the concession stand per child, per sport. Mmmm – smell the popcorn! Another way is to volunteer to be a coach or an assistant coach for your child’s team! Way to go!!!
  • Can I work for $$ in the Concession Stand?
    • Yes!!  The stand is open to all parent volunteers and to teenagers looking to make some cash! Please contact us if you are looking for some hours. Parents – please relate this opportunity to your children.
  • How can my children play for free?
    • If you feel that your time and talents could serve others, please consider joining the St. Norbert’s Athletic Commission (SNAC). Coordinators are needed! See the Athletic Commission page for openings.
  • When do I need to register for a sport?
    • Signups are usually 1-2 months in advance of the start of the season. It takes time to put together teams, leagues, and coaches. Late signups are not accepted unless it’s for a training league. Signup for online registration and you will be automatically notified by e-mail when future seasons open and close.
  • Will my child need an ID card?
    • Yes, CYC ID cards are required for all teams (except training league). They are $5. Please go to the following link for the card: http://www.cycstl.net
