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.

9/24 A Vball Game Rescheduled

After talking it over with DLS, the game for A volleyball has been rescheduled to Wednesday 10/23 still 3:30pm @ OLL. I am aware of the 7th/8th grade trip, so please plan accordingly to make sure your child is ready for the trip before the game that day. Which may mean you need to be packed and ready to go the night before. Luggage can be left on campus while the game is being played. It is my expectations that all team members will show up to the game, having to get ready for the trip is not a valid reason to miss the game.

A Volleyball Date Correction

It was brought to my attention that I had made a typo for the last practice of the week. I incorrectly put the date as 9/14 instead of 9/13. So there is NO SATURDAY PRACTICE. The last practice of the week will be held FRIDAY after school 3:15 until 4:30pm

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
