If you have a child in Grades K-5 that is interested in learning basketball skills or already knows how to play and wants some additional practice or if you just want him/her to have some indoor fun during the winter, sign up for CYO basketball! There are 3 levels / age groups:


Kindergarten and First Grade: Saturday mornings 9:00AM-10:00AM

In 2022 we launched our 1st CAS Cheer Team and 16 students joined our team in its inaugural season led by our Cheer Coach Kimberly Ramon (Coach K). Coach K has over 20 years experience in competitive Cheerleading, Dancing and Tumbling. Coach K was the Captain of her Middle School and High School Cheer teams and was formally trained in Tumbling and Cheerleading Safety at Hofstra University. 

The Cheer team practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays right after school at 2:05 – 3:30 pm. Next year, the Cheer team will be a full year team and will train in the Fall, Winter and Spring at the same times (Tuesdays & Thursdays) in line with the Beyond the Bell Session 1, 2 & 3 session dates. Cheer Registration includes all training sessions, uniform rental fee (Shell, Skirt & Poms), Team Hoodie, practice T-shirt & shorts, Cheer sneakers, Duffle bag, Bow, Half-top, briefs and socks. The full year total cost for a RETURNING Cheer team member is $345. The full year cost for a NEW CHEERLEADER is $490.

We are fortunate to have access to utilize the full gymnasium on our neighbor’s campus next door (the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 1230 Newfield Avenue). 


Students in grades 4th – 8th walk over for gym classes two times per week with members of our faculty.


We also have full use of the gym facility for various Beyond the Bell activities and the sports programming we offer for all our students.  The programs throughout the year include basketball, cheer, soccer, volleyball, among others.
