The fall registration period will open up on Sunday, May 1st and run through June 30th. In the past the registration period was in July, but communication was always difficult during summer vacation, so in an effort to ease the process, we are moving registration to the end of the school year, before summer vacations begins. The Fall sports offered are Soccer, Cross Country, Volleyball, and Cheer. The first week of the Fall Seasons would be the week of August 8th. Detailed schedules will not be out until a few weeks before the season.
· West Catholic Football registration is currently open and can be found at: https://tshq.bluesombrero.com/westcatholicfootball
Any questions regarding WC Football can be directed to Paul Gardner at: [email protected]
· OLGC Cheer will run through both Fall and Winter Season, there will not be a separate registration period for the Winter season as it has been in previous years.
- Winter Sport (Basketball, Bowling) Registration will be 9/1/22 – 9/30/22
- Spring Sport (Track & Field, Lacrosse, Baseball, and Softball) Registration will be 1/1/23 – 1/31/23

The CYO of Detroit informed all Parishes at our Spring Athletic Director meeting that they would be increasing the team registration and individual participant fees for the 2022-23 sports cycle, as well as referee/officials fees in an effort to pay officials a similar rate as other youth sports programs. The only changes that are being made to our registration fees at OLGC are a decrease in the annual maintenance fee that is charged once per family, during registration for their first sport, it will be reduced from $100 to $50 for the 2022-23 year, and a change to the Junior Crusaders Program; the new registration fee will be $75 per sport. The original fee of $50 was set with consideration to the higher maintenance fee of $100 in anticipation of these changes being made. All other sports will remain at their current rates for the upcoming 2022-23 seasons.
Our CYO program is always in need of volunteers during the seasons, whether as coaches, coordinators, or in other supporting roles. There are many ways to directly get involved, and many benefits of involvement. If you are a OLGC School Parent, you may claim your volunteering for your required DOVES hours every year. Anyone who coaches within the CYO Program must complete the Safe Environment requirements: https://school.olgcparish.net/safe-environments/ It is something that is great to have already completed, even if you don’t currently have any plans to coach, the requirements are the same that would allow you to volunteer at OLGC School. There is a tab to register as a sport specific volunteer when you register your student on our athletics website, or you may also contact me directly if you are interested.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
We exist to offer a life-changing encounter with Jesus and equip leaders to transform the culture.
