Playing sports for OLOV is a privilege and not a right, meaning that students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing and must commit to attending all practices and games.
The school is a full member of the Greater New Haven Parochial Athletic League (GNHPAL). All OLOV coaches are Virtus trained and emphasize learning fundamental skills, teamwork, and good sportsmanship.
Baseball: In the spring, boys in grade six through eight can compete in baseball as part of a team, called Catholic United, which includes players from several area Catholic schools.
Basketball: In the winter, students in grade four through eight can compete in basketball. In basketball, there are separate teams for boys and girls. OLOV basketball teams take pride in a long tradition of excellence often qualifying for league playoffs and competing in several invitational tournaments.
Cheerleading: In the winter, girls in grade five through eight can participate in cheerleading.
Soccer: In the fall, students in grade six through eight can compete on a co-ed soccer team.
Volleyball: In the spring, students in grade six through eight can compete in our co-ed volleyball teams.
