There are two levels of play for our student athletes competing in a PAROCHIAL ATHLETIC LEAGUE SPORT:
- A Level (Varsity): 7th and 8th graders. Playing time is not guaranteed to student athletes and instead is earned through practice, effort and play in games. This is a competitive level. Teams qualify for playoffs by finishing with a record of .500 or better. In the sports season, these games/matches are played at 3:30/4:30pm depending on opponent and there will be days that student athletes are dismissed from class early to get to a game.
- B Level (Junior Varsity): 5th and 6th graders. This is a developmental level in which all student athletes will get an opportunity to play. This is still a competitive level and playing time will differ between student athletes. There are no playoffs at the B Team Level. In the sports season, these games/matches are played at 3:30/4:40pm depending on opponent and there will be days that student athletes are dismissed from class early to get to a game. There are NO PLAYOFFS at the B Level!

DUCKS SHOOTOUT 2019
Saturday May 4th, 2019
7:00am – 3:00pm
Our Lady Queen of Angels will be participating in the SCORE program for the first time. The Shootout is a great experience for the lucky 16 participants.
- Boys and Girls will be selected from the applications/commitment forms turned in on time to create the team of 16.
- If there are more than 16 athletes that return a form by the specified date the PE teacher will determine who is selected for the team based on:
- o their positive participation in their PE class,
- o their teachers recommendation and their behavior inside and
- o outside of the classroom as well as
- o availability on May 4th for the whole day.
The shootout is a COED street hockey tournament that brings together over 30 other schools in the Orange County area to compete for “The Cup”. Each of the participating schools is a part of the SCORE program that teaches Orange County 4th graders the basics of street hockey and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
An Athlete’s Prayer
God, let me play well but fairly.
Let competition make me strong but never hostile
Forbid me to rejoice in the adversity of others
See me not when I am cheered, but when I bend to help my opponent up.
If I know victory, allow me to be happy:
If I am denied, keep me from envy.
Remind me that sports are just games.
Help me to learn something that matters once the game is over.
And if through athletics, I set an example,
Let it be a good one.
