Coach Waitman's Homepage

Hello, 
My Name is D.J. Waitman and I am your Athletic Director and PE Coach for the 2018-2019 school year. I am a graduate of Alemany High School class of 2011 and got my degree from Northern Arizona University in Elementary Education in 2015. This is my 3rd year as Athletic Director and 4th year total at Lourdes. I am excited to get these kids up and active and having fun! 
 
Grading
Grading for PE in all grades is based off of participation, effort, and dress code. With the occasional assignment based off of completion and submission (middle school only). If you show up, give it your all, and are overall a good classmate to your peers, there is no reason why you won't succeed in PE. 
 
Materials
  • Athletic Style Shoes are Mandatory (boots, vans are not acceptable equipment) please check the school handbook for more clarification
  • Water 
  • Skirts are not acceptable PE attire.

See You Around,

Winter Season information/Practice times for wk of 12/3

First things First,
Based off of the amount of kids that signed up and the talent that I believe the 7th and 8th graders both have, there will be no tryouts needed this year for Boys or Girls A basketball.
 
For Boys A we will have an 8th grade team(A1) and 7th grade team(A2)
 
For Girls A there will be one team. 
 
B level
For B level there will be 3 boys teams for 4th, 5th and 6th respectively. 
 
There will be one girls B team. 
 
B level practices will start week after next. 
 
4th and 5th grade boys coaches are still needed!! If you are interested please let me know asap! If no coaches can be found by next week, the teams may be in jeopardy of not being able to participate this season. 
 
Paperwork
The medical release, sports consent, and drivers insurance forms need to be turned in for every student that has signed up to play before they may start practicing, if your son or daughter does not have paperwork turned in by the first day of practice, they will be asked to sit and watch instead of participating. 
All forms can be found on the athletics page of the school website. 
 
Payment
A check/cc payment of $75 must be turned in to the front office, preferably we would like you to turn in payment with the paperwork. At the very least it needs to be turned in before the first game of the season.
 
Practice Schedule for Next Week:
 
Boys A1 Basketball
12/3-12/6 practice 3:15-4:30 
 
Girls A Basketball
