Coach Waitman's Homepage

My Name is D.J. Waitman and I am your Athletic Director and PE Coach for the 2019-2020 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 4th year as Athletic Director and 5th year total at Lourdes. I am excited to get these kids up and active and having fun! 
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. 
  • 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.

Spring Sports Awards/Uniform Return

First of all, Id like to congratulate all of our spring season athletes on another great season here at OLL. We represented the OLL community well all season long. Can't wait till next year! 
With that being said here are some end of year announcements: 
Spring Sports Awards
The Spring Sports Awards will be held Thursday, May 30th @ 1:30pm in Stroup Hall for grades 3-8. Track and Field members will also be recognized and if you won a medal or ribbon from May 4th or May 11th you will be receiving it then. 
Uniform Return
This year I am asking to please return all uniforms your child may have (Football, Girls Volleyball, Boys/Girls Basketball Jerseys{same as Boys Volleyball Jerseys}, Softball, and Track) washed and folded neatly in a ziplock bag preferably, but any bag will do. I am also asking to please write your child's name on the bag with a marker so I can easily Identify who has turned in their uniforms. I understand some people have returned uniforms throughout the school year, if you know your child has already turned in their uniform just have them remind me when I come by that morning. 
Here are the dates that I will be coming by in the morning to their classrooms to pick up the uniforms. 
3rd(Track)-5th Grades: Monday, May 20th
6th-8th Grades: Tuesday, May 21st
If you have misplaced a uniform, or fail to turn one in, the school will be asking for a $25 check to replace it.
Have a Great Weekend,
Coach Waitman

Softball Update
This year we had approximately 30 girls sign up between 4th-8th grade, which means we will be having a B team of 4th/5th graders and an A team of 6th-8th graders. However, practices will be held as one team. 
B Softball team(4th-5th grade)
Please do not turn in any paperwork or payment until I have confirmed there will be enough teams to have a B league season, in years past the number of B team schools has been very low, there is a chance that there will not be enough teams to have a full season. If that is the case then unfortunately the 4th grade girls will not be able to participate in softball games this season and the two 5th grade girls will join the A team. I will have more information after Monday night as that is when the league wide AD meeting is. If we are able to have a B team then you will be practicing with the A team so look out for the dates below!
A Softball team (6th-8th grade)Coach: Joe Allegretti
3/7 practice 3:15-5pm
3/8 practice 3:15-5pm
Track and Field
I will hopefully have more information regarding track meets/payment after my meeting on March 4th. Please hold off on turning in payment.

Playoff/Practice Schedule for the Week of 2/18

Congratulations to all of our Basketball teams on another successful season all around. A shout out is in order for our Boys A1 Basketball team who finished the regular season undefeated and will be the #1 seed out of the Mid Valley Division. Additionally, we also need to give a shout out to our Girls A team for finishing league in 2nd place and advancing to the playoffs as well! 
With all of that being said, I hope to see many of our young Crusaders out at the playoff games next week! Unfortunately, the league is still getting together the final standings and setting up the playoff brackets, which is impeding my process of getting the information to you in a more timely manner. So I will be sharing with you the information I have available and updating this post once things have been finalized. So please check back over the weekend for any updates I may have posted.
