“Jesus offers us something bigger than the World Cup! He offers us the possibility of a fulfilled and fruitful life; he also offers us a future with him, an endless future, eternal life. But he asks us to train, 'to get in shape,' so that we can face every situation in life undaunted, bearing witness to our faith....Dear young people, be true 'athletes of Christ!'.”
Pope Francis

CYO & Scouting

Sports provide St. Ambrose's young people and their families the opportunity to pursue authentic teamwork, competition and fair play.

The JCYO Sports Program provides a competitive basketball and track program for Catholic youth between 4th and 8th grades.  CYO is similar to other sports programs except this provides an environment where sportsmanship and prayer are more important than winning.  The cost of the program varies depending  on what sport you are in. The program is completely run by volunteers. All volunteers MUST BE compliant with the Child Protection Program of the Arlington Diocese to work with youth.

Cub Scouting is designed to serve the same basic purposes as the Boy Scouts of America: training in citizenship; providing for growth of moral strength and character; and enhancing the physical, mental, and emotional fitness of each member. St. Ambrose Pack strives to teach each member to live by the Cub Scout motto: Do Your Best.

Small gestures of love, of tenderness, of care, make people feel that the Lord is with us. This is how the door of mercy opens.

Prayer for athletes

Thanks, Lord, for giving me life, and talents for my participation in sports. Help me to play well, to use my powers to the full, to see them as gifts from you....Help me play with heart, and never lose heart. Most of all, help me never to quit in my efforts to be open to you. For I believe your full coming into my life is the way to real life, in all I do; I believe it is the way of my becoming the truly human person you destined me to be. Amen.
