Playing Basketball & Volleyball in a Church League
The Connecticut Eastern
Orthodox Basketball League (CEOBL) was established over 40 years ago as a way
for Orthodox children to become part of a team, representing their home parish,
and play in a league with other local Orthodox communities. Over the years it has grown to be one
of the better run leagues in the United States – it is not without flaws – but
the individuals coaching and the athletic directors from each of the parishes
involved, constantly strive to make the league a fun place for the children of
our communities to play.
How is the
The teams of the CEOBL compete
in four divisions open to both boys and girls: Youth Division (10 years old and
younger); Junior Varsity (13 years old and younger); Varsity (High School
Seniors and younger) and a Senior division for those over the age of 19. The teams practice on Thursday evening
at the Holy Infant Gymnasium (at least until the Saint Barbara Gymnasium is
completed). We also have girls
Junior Varsity (13 years old and younger) and Varsity (14 years old - High
School Seniors) volleyball teams that compete in the CEOVL. The volleyball teams practices (again,
at least until our parish Gymnasium is completed) at the Connecticut Sports
Center, located at 21 South Bradley Road in Woodbridge.
do the teams play?
The CEOBL games take place on
either Saturday or Sunday from the weekend before Thanksgiving thru February,
while the CEOVL games take place on Sunday from late December thru
February. No games are scheduled
on Sunday before 1:00 pm so as to provide all involved with the leagues to
attend the Divine Liturgy and other parish functions together with their

Trinity, New Rochelle.
of participating in the League.
The friendships; it really is that
simple. Our children will have an
opportunity to further develop their friendships with each other while at the
same time meeting other children or young adults their own age from other
parishes. I encourage you to ask
anyone of our parents who participated in the league when they were younger
about the friendships that they have maintained through the fellowship and
competition that the league offers.
does the Church sponsor Athletic Leagues?
From our youngest age, we find
ourselves in various competitive situations that will challenge our patience
and perseverance. In school and
even in the workplace we are often called to work together with other
individuals, often times in a highly competitive situation. Will we remain true to our values and
faith? Will we have learned how to
be gracious in both ‘victory’ and ‘defeat?’ Will we have learned how to be competitive and still keep
our integrity intact? The
experience of all the Youth Ministry Programs of our Church, including the
athletic teams can only assist in providing us a strong foundation as we
continue to grow and mature.
Game On. Faith On.
