The National Academy of Athletics, a Santa Rosa based SAFE based program has offered a pre-season experience for boys & girls grades 3-5 & 6-8.   This one day clinic is designed to help prepare players for the upcoming basketball season.  The goal is to make them a more confident basketball player.  With specific instruction on individual skills & team concepts, players will leave this clinic a better player.  They will be challenged during drils and small sized competitions that will help prepare them to compete.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit St. Francis CYO of Sonoma.

Each kid recives an official players t-shirt, the confidence builders program, skills, drills, Prizes & games!

Other Options for those not placed on a team

We are really disappointed to not include every kid that wants to play here in Sonoma, at the end of the day it is a very complex math equation of # of kids, # of coaches, teams, available gyms, rules for playing time etc.  IF you are one of those few parents whose children were not able to be placed on a team please consider the program at the Sonoma Boys and Girls Club.   It is dynamic and growing and your participation will only help make it better, AND importantly give your kids a chance to play.   Here is the registration link.


Don’t forget to bookmark the St. Francis CYO Basketball site and stay tuned for early registration information next year.

Registration Waitlist

Registration is closed, but we are taking waitlist applicants to fill in spaces as they become available. If you have failed to register your child at this point, please register to get on the wait list and we will do our best to include them.  Updates will be communicated 10/15

NOTE:  as an alternative option, the boys and girls club is also running a program this winter


September 30th, this Wednesday is the last day for registration for the upcoming season, please get your registrations in today, and remind those friends and families that have asked you about CYO to get to the website and get their registration done!   We are nearing capacity, there is no priority given for prior CYO participation if you do not register by September 30th.

OPEN GYM! FRIDAYS! 6-9PM October 2, 16 and 30

The Presentation School is generously hosting some open gym sessions for the kids to get a ball in their hands and remember what the game of basketball is all about.  This is all about the kids and fun, no instruction, just adult supervision.   Here’s the scoop:


FRIDAYS!  6-9PM  October 2, October 16 and October 30

Parents are encouraged to stay and hang out, but drop off is also completely fine, just leave your cell# with the gym supervisor.
