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,

Uniform tops will be passed out on gameday. Volleyball uniforms are the same from basketball season so if you played basketball and your team had a current uniform then that is what you will be using. If you played basketball but are not playing volleyball please have your child bring their jersey with them to school Monday. I will cross check the lists to see who played basketball but is not playing volleyball and come around to collect the uniforms so they can be passed out to the players that need one. 
 
Have a Great Weekend!

Volleyball/Softball Sports Schedule for the Week of 3/4

We will be starting with volleyball and softball practices next week. Which means the following forms can be turned in along with the $75 check made payable to Our Lady of Lourdes School:
Here are the practice schedules for next week:
 
Boys A1 Vball(8th grade team) Coach: Brian Young

Boys B Vball (4th-6th grade team)Coach: Hanna Larkin
3/4 practice 3:15-4:30pm
 
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.
