Games are typically on weekends with girls usually playing on Saturday and boys playing on Sundays.

OLGC has a growing Cheer program entering its third year! It has been very successful and continues to get better every year.

Cheerleading is for grades 1st – 5th and you may contact Coordinator Kristen Bosco at email@example.com with any questions.
OLGC offered over 20 CYO Basketball teams last season. Biddy CYO Basketball will be for grades 1 and 2, with no score being kept and lower rims. Grades 3 and above play between 16-20 games per season, plus playoffs, with practices typically once or twice per week depending on coach and gym availability. Teams are placed in the appropriate division based on skill level, and whenever possible, we offer multiple teams in a grade. CYO Basketball is for grades 1st – 8th and you may contact Coordinator Nancy Blomquist at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Kindergarten Basketball Clinic
Clinic starts in early November. The clinic is co-ed and takes place in the OLGC Gym on Saturday mornings. The main goals of the Clinic are to teach fundamentals, have fun, and get the boys and girls accustomed to playing basketball. The Clinic will focus on teaching the basic rules of basketball, as well as dribbling, passing, defense, and shooting.
We will use lower hoops (8 feet) during the Clinic. Volunteers are needed – to volunteer, or for any questions, email OLGCSportsAssociation@gmail.com
St. Teresa’s Intramural Basketball
This year we are working with St. Teresa’s if you are interested in registering for their 3rd – 8th Grade intramural basketball program. Last year over 75 OLGC children played in the St. Teresa’s league. This is a good supplement to CYO basketball, teams made by age ranges, and it is a more recreational league than CYO.
