Athletics

Welcome to Our Lady of Sorrows Athletics!

 

Bowling!!

Attention Parents and Students:  The bowling team will officially begin practice on Monday, the 13th, at Country Lanes Bowling Alley (5:30 pm).  Registration for all who are interested in joining the bowling team will be at 5 pm at the bowling alley.  (A valid physical, dated after 4/15/21 must be presented in order to participate.)  If your son or daughter is sitting around the house and wishes to be on a team, the bowling team is absolutely perfect for them.  The team practices once a week and they compete on Saturdays during the winter months.  The kids always have fun bowling with their friends, so why not allow them the opportunity to bowl each week with friends.  

 

Join the team Monday night!


Country Lanes is located at:  30250 West 9-Mile Road, Farmington Hills, MI
Any questions can be directed to Mary Sheltrown at: msheltrown@olsorrows.com

 

Parents and Players,

Your coaches will be contacting you soon to let you know your practice schedule.
 
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.
 
Participation in O.L.S. C.Y.O. Sports. If your child is playing or trying out for a sport, please take time to read carefully the "OLS Sports Athletic Code of Conduct" page, accessed from the menu on the left side of this page.  There is essential information in this document for all participants in the C.Y.O. programs.
 
Volunteering. A volunteer working with children and/or youth must comply with the guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese of Detroit.  This includes: 1. submission to a background check, and 2. certification in "Protecting God's Children"(for college students and adults) or "Called To Serve" (for high school students). Before a high school students gets credit for service hours, these guidelines must be met. Please go to the "Coaches' Corner" web page for the information you need.
 
Coaching. 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. Thank you to all that take on this vital role on our community.
 
And thank you to the spouses of these coaches.  Anytime a coach takes on such a magnanimous commitment to our youth, as coaching is, their spouse has to pick up the slack at home.  We appreciate very much the sacrifice that you make for us.
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.
 
We are always searching for coaches for upcoming seasons. 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.
 
Thank you.
Go Saints!!
