Life At OLQA » Athletics

Athletics

The Our Lady Queen of Angels athletic program focuses on Catholic values such as respect, responsibility, self-confidence, and leadership. The program believes that competition is important and that sportsmanship is vital. Student-athletes to try their best to be good athletes. More importantly, however, they try harder to be better teammates and more responsible young people. The children of OLQA are students first and athletes second. The OLQA Athletic Department is committed to the physical and emotional well-being of student-athletes and to the social development of the whole person.

There are two levels of play for our student athletes competing in: 

  1.      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.  
  2.      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!

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.

Amen!
