Welcome to Our Lady of Sorrows Athletics!
Athletic Club Annual Golf Outing!!
Please plan on attending our annual golf outing on August 16th. Ron Rapson and Joe Doa are planning a great day at Cattails Golf Club! If you can't play golf, or if the golf sells out, please plan on attending dinner.

Summertime. We're working on making our programs better for 2014-2015. Please let me know your thoughts, or how you may be able to help next year.
Have a great summer! Take lots of pictures!
Participation in OLS CYO Sports. If your child is playing or trying out for a sport, please take time to read carefully the "OLS Sport Athletic Code of Conduct" page, accessed from the menu on the left of this page. There is essential information in this document for all participants in the C.Y.O. programs.
Parent Involvement. As parents of program participants, we all have to do our share of volunteering to make our athletic program run efficiently. Of equal importance, everyone's participation results in successful events for the enjoyment of our families and visitors from other parishes. Volunteering includes helping at concessions, collecting admissions, gym and field setup, cleanup, etc.
Coaching. We are always searching for coaches for upcoming seasons. Good coaching is the essential element to the goal of C.Y.O. athletics: the healthy development of our youth-emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually. Children that enjoy athletic competition and savor participation with a team of their peers, look up to good coaches as role models.
The attached "Being Present," below, captures the essence of the significance of coaching. Although the article's subject is a priest, the idea that the critical element to a child's attention is commitment and sincere interest, applies to coaching as well.
If you think you would be a good coach, please call me so that we can meet and discuss this rewarding and valuable role. I would look forward to that very much.
Please call or contact me at (248) 321-2521 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments.
