Our Lady of Lourdes offers student sports through CYO. It is a parent and faculty supported program that focuses on fun, teamwork and sportmanship. The school offers four sports during the school year for students of all ages. Students must pay a one-time fee at the beginning of the school year to be eligible to play.
In the Fall, the school fields soccer teams for students in grades 1 through 8. These teams play games once a week against other Catholic schools and practice once or twice a week, depending on age. Practices are at the school's state-of-the-art turf field and game locations are determined by the league. For students in Pre-K and Kindergarten, the school offers a weekly soccer clinic on the school's turf field.
Also, for the first time this Fall, students in grades 1 through 8 may run cross-country. The team will practice once or twice a week and have races on Sundays. Races will be against other Catholic schools and loactions determined by the league. An additional, per-student fee may apply to students running cross-country.
