We would like to welcome you to the Ohio State CYO High
School Boys and Girls Basketball Tournament website, home of the CYO State Tournament and March Madness! After qualifying
through their local CYO program, High School Boys and Girls teams
from across the state of Ohio gather at a host city for the Annual Tournament.
Sixteen boys teams and eight girls teams from various dioceses participate in the tournament. The single elimination tournament with a consolation round begins on Friday evening and crowns the State Champion on Sunday.
The David Vinson Sportsmanship Award is awarded to a boys and girls team each year. After every game, officials, staff and the opposing teams rate teams on their sportsmanship traits as identified by the tournament director.
The Diocese of Cleveland is proud to host this year's tournament. Tournament Director is Mary Ann King, Athletic Assistant Administrator. You can reach her at 1-330-379-3636 ext. 17 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Headquarters will be at the Double Tree by Hilton, in Beachwood, Ohio.
