The athletic program at St. Thomas More School is operated through the CYO (Catholic Youth Organization) of Northwest Indiana.
The Northwest Indiana CYO is committed to providing a ministry that helps bring youth to their full human potential. The CYO enables youth to reach higher achievement by having requirements demanding specific grades in order to be able to participate and maintain eligibility in CYO programs. The CYO provides opportunities for young people to develop strong moral character, self-esteem and leadership qualities through activities of a social, educational, recreational and athletic nature.
