Athletic participation provides our students with an additional opportunity for development to complement their academic and spiritual growth here at Our Lady of Peace School. We strive to teach good sportsmanship as well as individual and team skills. Our OLP Crusader teams participate primarily against the local Diocesan grade schools. Skill development is the primary goal of the 4th grade and younger and Junior Varsity programs. The Varsity programs are more competitive in nature.
Our Athletic Association secures volunteer coaches with the appropriate clearances and training in accordance with diocesan standards. They also provide equipment and uniforms to our teams, pay for tournament fees, competition fees, referee stipends, and Diocesan field assessments. The revenue comes from diocesan athletic participation fees and funds raised at sports tournaments, the OLP Crusader Derby, and the OLP All Sports Lottery.
