Athletics at OLG

As proud, new members of the Catholic Youth Organization - San Fernando/Ventura (CYO-SF/V), Our Lady of Grace School offers their students in grades 5 through 8 the opportunity to play on basketball, flag football, softball, or volleyball teams; or to compete on our swim, golf, or track teams.  The "A" sports teams are comprised of students from grades 7 and 8.  The "B" teams are made up of students in grades 5 and 6.  Our swim and track teams are comprised of students from Kindergarten through grade 8.  Our golf team is comprised of students from grades 2 through 8.

Registration for the above sports is held at the beginning of the school year at the Sports Orientation Meeting.  All interested families are asked to attend where they're able to register their athlete for this year's sports.  All sports fees will be applied to families FACTS accounts.

Our Lady of Grace is in the Mid Valley Conference of the Catholic Youth Organization - San Fernando/Ventura (CYO-SF/V). The CYO website has up to date schedules, standings, and calendar: cyola.org

The fall season runs from September to November for girls "A" and "B" volleyball, and for "A" and "B" flag football.  OLG's "home" field for flag football is located at Balboa Park in Encino.

The winter season runs from December to February for boys and girls "A" and "B" basketball.

The spring season runs from March to May for girls "A" softball and boys "A" and "B" volleyball.  OLG's "home" field for softball is located at Balboa Park in Encino.

The OLG Track Team usually participates in at least three meets in the spring season. Volunteer parent coaches begin training our Kinder - 8th graders in March.

 

Our co-ed Swim Team season runs from the beginning of September through the end of October. The season consists of four meets held at local San Fernando Valley pools. Swimmers may compete by age group, individually by gender, and can also participate on relay teams. Interested families should contact our parent coordinators via swimteam@ourladyofgrace.co

Our co-ed Golf Team is made up of 2nd - 8th graders who participate in three tournaments (fall, winter, spring) through the CYO.

Volunteer parent coaches generously give their time, talent, and energy to help lead and guide our athletes through their sports seasons.  All coaches are CYO certified.  They have been fingerprinted, attended a VIRTUS/"Protecting God's Children" training program provided by the L. A. Archdiocese, and a Play Like Champion training session provided by the Catholic Youth Organization.  Volunteer school service hours are given for the time spent coaching a team.

Parents are responsible for getting their athletes to and from the games and practices.  Volunteer parents may provide transportation on game days.  It is up to an athlete's parent to make arrangements for driving/carpooling a child or children to and from practices and games.  

Ms. Andrea Fisher is the Athletic Director of Our Lady of Grace School and directs the sports program here. If you have any questions about our sports program, please contact Coach Fisher at 818-344-4126, extension 333; or e-mail her at: afisher@ourladyofgrace.co.
