Athletics at OLG
Registration for the above sports is held late August 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 West Valley division of the Valley Catholic Sports League (VCSL). An informative website that has up to date schedules, standings, and directions to "away" games on it is: http://www.leaguelineup.com/welcome.asp?url=vcsp.
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.
OLG will begin participating in the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) and their soccer season. Practices will take place at Balboa Park starting in Nov. with the season beginning in Feb. We are excited for this new opportunity for our 5th - 8th graders.
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 Feb.
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.
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. Parents interested in driving athletes other than their own to practices and games must submit a copy of their driver license and current auto insurance policy declaration page (showing liability coverage of at least $100K/$300K). This required information will be collected at the sports orientation meeting and kept for our records.
