Before you put your sneakers too far back in the closet, Catholic Charities’ CYO Athletics has announced its Adult Co-Ed Basketball League beginning in June.

The league was started in 2012 “to provide a recreational league for the adults to compete, have fun, and stay active,” Roland Tianco, assistant manager of CYO Athletics told Catholic San Francisco.

You have to be 18 and out of high school to sign up and the league is open to parishioners from anywhere in the archdiocese. “There is no maximum age, however participants should know their limits and capabilities to participate in full court organized basketball games,” Tianco said.

“The league has always been fun and competitive. The different teams in the past have consisted of friends, members of a specific parish, families, and work colleagues,” Tianco said. Some teams are regulars each year, he said, and CYO does keep score and maintain standings.

“After the end of the regular season, we take the top teams from the standings and place them in a playoff bracket,” Tianco said. “This will all lead up to a championship game where the winners receive championship T-shirts.”

The goal is a minimum of eight total teams with about 10 players on each.


Games are played on Sunday nights at St. Emydius gym, 255 Jules Ave., San Francisco, and CYO Serramonte Gym, 699 Serramonte Blvd., Daly City. Teams are self-coached, have a minimum of seven players and must provide their own matching or similar looking tops with numbers. The league provides two referees per game. In keeping with the co-educational aspect of the program, each team is required to have one female player playing throughout each game. Deadline is June 2. Fee is $85 per player.
