We are very fortunate to have Julie Dody return to lead the pack and taking us on the road for cross country.
Do you enjoy running, then cross country may be just the outlet you are looking for. Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at OLPH from 5:15 to 6:45 pm and will start in, August. It's too early for the meet schedule, but they are normally held on Sundays at 2:15 pm and typically completed by 3:30-4:00 depending on how many runners we have. The season usually starts in September and wraps up by mid-October, the locations are different for each meet and held throughout the Lehigh Valley. The grade and distance breakdowns are as follows:
· grades K-2 1/2 mile
· grades 3-4 1 mile
· grades 5-6 1.5 miles
· grades 7-8 2 miles
Students of the school and/or parishioners of the church in grades 4 thru 8 can register. No experience is necessary. Please see about having registration completed prior to July 31st.
· Grades 6th thru 8th (Varsity) - This age group strives to be able to execute skills comparable to what will be expected at a competitive high school level. First year 7th and 8th grade players are welcome to participate so they can learn the sport and compete.
· Grades 4th thru 6th (JV) - This age group is being introduced to the sport and strives to be able to apply the fundamental skills / techniques to match situations. The goal is to utilize three contacts as often as possible so the team is preparing for competitive volleyball.
· Practices – usually 2 times a week beginning in August
· Matches – Saturdays and Sundays beginning as early as Labor Day weekend (season ends late October/early November)
· Coaches / Volunteers – The program can always use the help of coaches. We have many experienced coaches that can teach new coaches about volleyball. Coaches and volunteers need to have all background checks and clearances to participate.
· Questions/Volunteers – Please contact Coach Zile at 610-392-6769 (call or text) or email@example.com with any questions about the season and / or if you are able to volunteer as a coach for the season.
Registration is now open for the 2022 Track and Field Season at OLPH!!
The official start to the season has not yet been announced. Here is what we anticipate the season will look like.
Practices will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the season.
Practices will begin around the second week of March.
The meets are traditionally held on Saturdays at Notre Dame High School.
The meets should begin in April and finish up by the middle of May.
Grades Kindergarten through 8th grade are expected to compete.
We anticipate that all the events will be in play this year. In addition to the sprints, distance, and relays, this season should include the throwing events (shot put, javelin, and discus) and the high jump.
If your athlete is new to the team, please say “yes” to the shirt. We use the same running shirts for both Cross Country and Track.
As more information becomes available from the Diocese, additional announcements will follow.
If you have any questions, please contact Julie Dody at 610-393-3765 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Protecting God’s Children™ Program for Adults was purchased to educate every priest, employee, and volunteer who works with children about the harms of child sexual abuse and what they can do to prevent it. The Safe Environment Coordinator organizes the training sessions as well as administers the web-based online system that tracks who has been trained. The system provides follow-up information and reinforcement to facilitators and to participants who have been trained.
The Protecting God’s Children™ program is a three-hour video presentation. Any adult volunteer who comes into contact with children for more that 15 hours a year is required to attend this program. Workshops require PRE-registration. Past attendees are eligible to sign up for ongoing bulletins from Vitrus.
