Our Lady of Fatima Soccer Team

OLF-CYO is in the process of considering starting a varsity (7th and 8th) grade co-ed soccer team. We are very excited about this prospect and believe it will be very successful. However, as it may interfere with other fall sports, we would like to gauge interest from the parents and children of Our Lady of Angels. ALL children attending OLA from different parishes are welcome to play, as long as their parish CYO does not have their own soccer team. If you believe that this is something that your child would be interested it, would you please email us at tmmyers04@comcast.net

with your child’s name and grade? CYO is hopeful that this will be a success as there are other CYO leagues that already have teams at this level and it is very successful. If you have any questions, please call Tom Lusch at 610.724.6055.
