Athletics & Extra Curricular Programs
The athletic program at Our Lady of Mercy School is designed to provide our students with the opportunity to participate in well supervised inter scholastic sports. Our primary goal in accordance with our philosophy is to stress the development of Christian character.
Our Lady of Mercy School is a member of the Piedmont Elementary Catholic Schools Athletic Association (PECSAA). The association is involved in tournaments for each sport each year as We also participate in the statewide Shamrock Basketball Tournament, and host the Renegar Basketball Tournament. Please visit the PECSAA website for league rules, directions for games at PECSAA schools, and other information.

A participation fee will be charged per sport, per student. This helps to offset expenses incurred.
A physical exam is required for each team member in order to participate.
Parents of all students participating in the sports program will be expected to volunteer some time to the program.
Note: Sports are offered based on availability of volunteer coaches.
ALL STUDENTS attending athletic events must be supervised by an adult at all times.
All of our extra-curricular programs depend upon parent involvement and vary because of this.
