Online registration is now available for the St. John’s of Swampscott girls and boys basketball program. Swampscott boys and girls in grades 5-8 may register at swampscottcyo.org by going to the Register On-Line section.
The CYO basketball program in Swampscott began in 1953, under the guidance of Dick Lynch as a grammar school intramural team program. It is the oldest youth athletic organization in Swampscott. Our home games and practices are held at the Swampscott Middle School. CYO plays a 14-18 game schedule finishing with the state tournament in March. Teams include St.Adelaide’s and St. John’s of Peabody. St. Mary’s, St. Pius, and Sacred Heart of Lynn. St. Joseph, St. Francis, and St. Rafael of Medford. St. Johns of Winthrop, Blessed Sacrament of Saugus, Immaculate Conception of Revere, Our Lady of Assumption in Lynnfield, St Thomas of Nahant and St. Mary's of Winchester. The Bantam team is comprised of 4th, 5th, and 6th grade players. The Cadet team is comprised of 7th and 8th grade players. This type of set-up most closely resembles the current High School Basketball combined grade level teams. CYO basketball provides the best opportunity for success in this type of environment.
Information about player evaluations will be announced later. For further information, contact Ted Kennedy at Ted.Kennedy@swampscottcyo.org.
