Practices

Practices will start in late August and they will be on Friday nights at Visitation with Games on Saturday mornings at Visitation.  We will be asked to play a couple of games specifically during the playoffs at other locations.  Additionally I periodically might try to fit  in an extra practice when we can.

Teams: 

Update - We were able to work out the logistics to be able to have a U10 Girls Soccer team.  We will still have four teams but unfortunately we do not have enough players for a U12 Girls team.  The older players who were going to play on the U12 team will be asked to play on the U14 team.   

Grade/Age Eligibility

To be eligible to play on the U10, U12 or U14 teams you have to be a rising 3rd, 4th,  5th, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th grader that is a student at OLV or a member of the parish.   Exceptions to this will be made and historically we have asked players from other schools that do not have a soccer team to join OLV’s team.

CYO does implement a couple of age parameters around each age group.  For the U10 team, you have to be 10 years old or younger on August 31st, 2018, for the U12 team you have to be 12 years old or younger by August 31st 2018 and for the U14 team you have to be 14 years old or younger by August 31st, 2018.  This is why 9th graders are allowed to play on the U14 teams.    It should be noted that the teams are constructed in a manner to try to ensure the best experience for each player so for example some kids who are in the 7th grade might be asked to play on the U12 team and some kids in the 7th grade might be asked to play on the U14 team.

Summer Open Gym Basketball Program

We are excited to again be able to offer the Summer Open Gym Basketball Program at Visitation.  The program is free and open to all rising 3rd grade to high school OLV CYO players. The Program will start on Wednesday June 20th from 6 to 8pm.  If you are planning on attending please bring a basketball with your name on it a water bottle and proper tennis shoes (No black soles). The open gym is meant to provide the players with an opportunity to play pick up games or simply shot around.

The open gym will be held on the following dates -- all Wednesdays 6-8pm at Visitation; June 20th, 27th; July 11th, 18th and 25th
